A charming young lady in a provincial French town is obsessed by the supernatural. Most are tolerant of her, but the government inspector regards her as a threat to order and security. He summons all of the authority and power of the state to rid her of her obsession. She falls in love, thereby discovering the joys of the normal world and accomplishing in a split second what law, force and logic could not.
