Drama The loves affairs of the Belle Casque d'Or who was very famous during the Belle Epoque Period.

Marie, a prostitute called the Casque d'Or (Golden Helmet) because of her sparkling hair, is angry at her boyfriend of the moment, a handsome hood named Roland. Along comes Raymond accompanied by his childhood friend Manda, a gang member who has gone straight and is working as a carpenter.
There is love at first sight between the beautiful Marie and the carpenter. A dangerously destructive passion, against the backdrop of rivalries and jealousy within the gang, unites the two lovers.
