Now, the Communists take over the family's Transylvania castle, and they are banished from Romania. The Count and Ferdinand go their separate ways until they reunite in Paris where they meet beautiful Nicole (Marie-Helene Breillat), and both fall in love with her. Nicole chooses Ferdinand and accidentally exposes the Count to sunlight, which makes him disappear. A few years later, Nicole and Ferdinand have married and have two children.
