unfaithful to him. He offers her two options. Either he has
her lover charged with embezzlement, which will surely be the ruin of
him, or his wife must agree to spend her days as a prostitute in the
grimmer precincts of a Moroccan port. To save the man she loves,
the woman chooses the second solution.
