Plot and Cast

The story is told in three separate chapters.

Chapter 1: The Closure

In Paris in 1946, when a new law closes all brothels, an owner has to dismiss his girls and dispose of the premises and their contents. He and his wife distribute parting gifts to the girls, including Héloïse. but one is away at a family bereavement. This is Lucette, for whom is reserved the red lantern that hung over the front door.

Chapter 2: The Trial

Two incompetent burglars break into the mansion of a baron and flee when disturbed, abandoning most of their loot. One is caught and put on trial, while the other got away with only a red lantern. In her testimony the baroness, formerly Lucette, charms the whole court as she says it was her most treasured possession.

Chapter 3: Men of Good Taste

Walking home late one night from the private athletic club where the leading citizens of a little town keep fit., the bachelor Léon sees a plain-clothes policeman harassing Héloïse, a homeless young woman. Rescuing her, Léon offers her his dead mother's bedroom, upon which his housekeeper leaves in disgust. He is due to host the annual dinner of the club, so Héloïse recruits Sophie, a fellow worker, to cook and serve. The club members are so delighted by the food and the attentive waitresses that they resolve to hold dinners there more often. Héloïse recruits more girls to cope with the increased demand for their services. At Christmas, Leon gives Héloïse a special present he has found - a red lantern to hang over the front door.
