In a white boudoir of fantastic luxury she becomes his mistress for the night. Paquita is in love with the Marquise de San-Real, who is Henris half-sister. Now she loves the saame person in two forms. When Henri discovers that Paquita has another lover he is moved to enact vengeance, & brother & sister confront each other in a blood-spattered room.
