Jeanne is a pathological liar. She lies as she breathes. She can't stop telling fabulous stories in which she is the beautiful heroine. She goes from Paris to Bordeaux, and after a few days of wandering, she meets Madeleine, a credulous old woman who hires her for its service. But Madeleine is the prey of Antoine, a handsome and roguish young man. When the old woman tells him that Jeanne is an heiress, Antoine decides to seduce her and then kidnap her.
