In a dingy apartment on the Passage du Pont-Neuf in Paris, ThérÃ¨se Raquin is trapped in a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin, Camille. The numbing tedium of her life is suddenly shattered when she embarks on a turbulent affair with her husband's earthy friend Laurent. But their passion for each other soon compels the lovers to commit a crime that will haunt them forever. ThérÃ¨se Raquin is not only an uninhibited portrayal of adultery, madness, and ghostly revenge, but also a devastating exploration of the darkest aspects of human existence.
