Maggie Prescott is a publisher of Quality magazine. She is looking for a new fashion trend, linked to culture, intellectual.
Dick Avery, is going to Greenwich Village to do a photo shoot in a bookstore. He was accompanied by model Marion, and his technical team. Dick takes several photos of Marion leafing through books but is not convinced. Meanwhile, the shoot is over, and the bookstore is a mess. So he met Jo Stockton, a beautiful intellectual saleswoman, who was not happy with this situation. This way, everyone leaves and Dick keeps tidying up the bookshop with Jo. And so, Dick notices Jo’s beauty and asks her to take some photos, but she declines.
Later, Dick Avery notices that Jo is in the background of one of the photos. Dick is thrilled and shows Maggie the photo which also looks radiant. So they decide to call the bookstore to place a book order so that Jo can go to the Quality building.
When Jo is delivering the books, she is harassed by Maggie to do a photo session. Jo declines the request. Soon after, Dick meets Jo and manages to convince her because the session will be held in Paris. In this way, Jo can meet the philosopher and teacher Émile Flostre. Flostre is developing several ideas concerning empathy.
Finally, in Paris, Jo Stockton is disappointed because she has been harassed by Flostre. From then on, her relationship with her work softens and she starts to like him, and his lovely photographer.
