Jeanne Balibar


Nastassia Philippovna has four men in her life: her protector, who wants to get rid of her to enter a marriage of convenience; her fiancé, to whom she is engaged to another in return for a juicy dowry; her rich, shady, sinister suitor; and the idiot, who loves her madly and has decided to save her. One evening the four coincide.
