Mother Duclos is a spiritualist dispensing succour, on payment of a fee, to the troubled people who come to her chapel. But a woman incites everyone to turn against her, and they strip the chapel of its religious artefacts. Desolate, Mother Duclos is comforted finally by the crippled little girl who returns to say that she still believes.
