1774 between Potsdam and Berlin, shortly before de French Revolution. A group of French libertines have scaped the ultra-conservative government of Louis XVI. They then meet with legendary German free-thinker and seducer Duc de Walchen. In a country ruled by a hypocritical regime of virtue, the mission of this group of expats is to export to Germany the libertinage, a philosophy based on the rejection of moral boundaries and authorities.
A tableau vivant of old Europe, in which new fashions and modern business practices take on grotesque forms.
