Laura and Claire have been best friends since childhood: they grew up, got engaged, and married one just after the other. Laura gives birth and when, a few months after, she finds out she is severely ill, she has Claire promise she will take care of her husband and baby girl. After Laura’s death, Claire becomes a friend of David, a young widower, and discovers the intimate secret that he shared with his dead wife only: his passion for cross dressing, to the point of creating a female alter ego, Virginia. Virginia soon becomes to Claire the indispensable element making up for the lack of Laura, and safeguarding her increasingly vacillating psychological balance.
