Vera Baxter is talking to a woman in a bar. The woman was attached to Vera by hearing her name called out : “Baxter, Vera Baxter”. In response to her new friend’s curiosity, Vera tells her life story. The tale of her marriage to no-good husband Cayre. The man who uses Vera as a sort of unpaid prostitute in order to keep his failing building business going… Talented French writer Marguerite Duras transposes her own magical words into images.
