In a desperate quest to save his hometown, a young man quickly learns that a sharp wit is the key to open any door in the Versailles court of Louis XVI, circa 1780. The ever-fluid pecking order is determined by the quality and rapidity of one's rejoinders, and a man can be driven to suicide by the one thing that must be avoided at all costs: being the object of ridicule. Compassionate, upright engineer Gregoire Ponceludon de Malavoy is baron of an estate where the peasants are dropping like flies, felled by diseases that breed in the fetid waters where they fish. Broke, but determined to drain the murderous swamps, Gregoire sets out from the provinces to plead his case at Versailles. His mission is complicated when he finds himself in a triangle with two very seductive ladies--a sophisticated older woman who can help him, and an innocent beauty with nothing to offer but her love.
