This terrifying pair, who acts in the theatre world but who is present in every sphere of the high society, is going to be broken by Nadège, Léon’s sister-in-law, a little and terrible teenager who will manage to triumph over Léon and marry Boris, the star, thanks to her devastating mischievousness and determination.
