In 1889, young Englishwoman Vicky Barton (Jean Simmons) and her brother Johnny (David Tomlinson) arrive in Paris to see the Exposition Universelle. After checking into a hotel, she drags her tired brother to dinner and the famous Moulin Rouge. She finally retires for the night, while Johnny has a late-night drink. When English painter George Hathaway (Dirk Bogarde) drops off his girlfriend, Rhoda O'Donovan (Honor Blackman), and her mother at the hotel, he asks Johnny for change for a 100 franc note to pay a carriage driver; Johnny loans him 50 francs and gives him his name and room number. The next morning, Vicky finds a blank wall where Johnny's room used to be. When she questions hotel owner and manager Madame Hervé the latter claims she arrived alone. The room number now adorns the common bathroom. Frantic, Vicky goes to see the British consul, followed secretly by Narcisse. She has no proof of her brother's existence, so the consul can only suggest she find a witness. Where has her brother disappeared to? Is she having a breakdown? Is it a conspiracy theory? So many questions.... are they any answers?
