Synopsis

Lust : Yveline Case:
Had the police not found the lifeless, shackled body of Yveline, nobody could have ever imagined what was happening at the home of Rene Bellefroid, a wealthy French industrialist. Yveline was a young computer scientist leading a double life. When her body was discovered, her ankles were shackled... she had a halter without panties... her bra was undone. In Douai, France everyone knows and respects Bellefroid, a rich industrialist... but not many are familiar with his fetish evenings involving whips, chains, nails, and leather. Is he responsible for the death of Yveline? Not in the eyes of the courts, whose eyes happen to be set on the older envious ex-mistress of Bellefroid: having lost Rene's favour...
