A look at the final days of a turn of the century brothel when much of the Parisian sex trade was confined to grand maisons, populated by elegant madams and vetted clientele. Within L'Apollonide's walls: Madeline who is horribly disfigured by a client and becomes known as "the woman who laughs", Clotilde the veteran who longs to be a "respectable woman" and Pauline, the newcomer whose eyes are quickly opened to reality.
