Veronica is brilliant, gifted and beautiful, but the handsome aristocrat she loves, Marco Venier (Sewell), cannot marry her because she is penniless and of questionable family. So, Veronica's mother, Paola (Bisset), teaches her to become a courtesan, one of the exotic companions favored by the richest and most powerful Venetian men. Courtesans, though excluded from the polite female society of wives and daughters, were the only women allowed an education of knowledge of the arts, and their sophistication gave them access to the hearts and minds of men in the highest places.
