Plot Summary
Educated young Rose (Madeleine Renaud) finds herself in a tough position when her father files for bankruptcy. She takes a job as a maid at a center for children, most of whom come from tragic circumstances. Sensitive and kind, Rose is quickly a favorite, especially with young Marie (Paulette Elambert), whose prostitute mother has all but abandoned her. Discovering Rose is overqualified, the school head insists she give up her job, to the dismay of Dr. Libois (Henri Debain) and the children.
