Tagline: She gave her innocence, her passion, her body. The one thing she couldn't give was her love.

Plot: Indochina, 1929. On a ferry a 27-year-old Chinese man spots an alluring but poor French teenager. They soon begin a forbidden but fiercely passionate romance. While the man truly loves the girl, she remains aloof, for her involvement with him is more out of rebellion towards her family -- and for sexual excitement -- rather than love. However when the gentleman is forced to marry a woman chosen by his parents, the young girl realizes she may have lost the true love of her life...
