This is the second of the Three Colors trilogy, Red, White, and Blue; the colors symbolizing liberty, equality and fraternity. White, therefore, was written around the destructive dynamics of a relationship based upon great inequality. Karol, a Polish hairdresser living in Paris, is divorced by his beautiful wife for his inability to "consummate the marriage." Karol loses all of his earthly possessions and is literally driven out of France. Forced to begin anew, he returns to Poland and plans a clever scheme of revenge against her.
