At a plush 19th-century Paris brothel, desire and power rule the lives of women, trapped by circumstance, who fall into the world’s oldest profession.
Paris, 1871. Star attraction Véra is about to finally leave The Paradise to live with the Baron Du Plessis. But The Paradise owes money to a dangerous debt collector, and madam Hortense Gaillac is willing to resort to absolutely anything to keep her.
Rose manages to escape The Paradise before being tracked down by the police. When Véra organizes a strike in protest of an assault, Hortense responds by offering Rose’s chastity to the highest bidder. Meanwhile Pierre Gaillac arrives from the colonies.

Hortense must defend against the schemes of Pierre, who wants to leverage The Paradise for his own gains. A police investigation is launched in response to Véra’s claims and two girls are arrested. One day, Rose finds a photo of her mother in the house.
Pierre invites many wealthy clients to The Paradise on his own accord. Hortense attempts to spite him by keeping the ladies locked in their rooms. Rose, always in search of information about her mother, presses Hortense, who reveals her mother’s identity.
Angéle’s fiancée, Brise Caboche, is desperate to obtain her freedom and blackmails Hortense, who has no choice but to ask her brother Pierre for money. Meanwhile, Rose confides in Véra how she plans to escape the Paradise: seducing Pierre.
Hortense wants to terminate Angéle’s pregnancy, but the other women band together to protect her. Rose seduces Pierre in an attempt to gain her freedom, and soon Pierre’s wife arrives at the brothel to confront her husband’s mistress, thinking it is Véra.
Pierre will stop at nothing to save himself and begins to entertain the most outrageous customer requests. Hortense mounts a strong opposition, aided by Vera and Rose. Along the way, Rose discovers the truth about her mother…and her own past.
