The only hope of saving the Montmarte is a new play in which Marion stars, while director Lucas hides in the basement listening in on rehearsals. Meanwhile, there is a romantic attraction between Marion and the play's leading man Bernard Granger (Gerard Depardieu), but they manage to resist temptations as Marion chooses to remain loyal to her country and to her husband.
