A young, skinny courtesan, to whom protector Etienne Balsan offers a safe haven, amongst the idle and decadent...
A woman in love who knows she will never be anyone's wife, refusing marriage even to Boy Capel, the man who returned her love...
A rebel who finds the conventions of her time oppressive, and instead dresses in her lovers' clothes...
