Left outside while the arrangement is finalised, Manon meets and falls in love with the handsome Des Grieux and they flee Paris. Later found and tempted by Monsieur GM’s extravagant wealth, she leaves with him as his courtesan, however all is not lost in this compelling love story, as Des Grieux will appear again…
