Helene understands that Jean doesn't love her anymore. She's full of grief and anger and starts brooding on the idea of revenge. When she meets Jean again, she pretends to be the one that's fallen out of love. Jean's relieved, thinking they can now part as friends. Helene goes to a night club, where Agnès is a famous dancer. Agnés has been forced into this life of debauchery and courtesanship because of poverty. She hates it and equally hates all the lecherous men there. Helene met Agnès and her mother several years ago, and after the show, looks them up. She says she'll help them leave this degrading life. The next day, they move to an apartment Helene's rented and stay there anonymously. Some days later, she arranges a seemingly spontaneous meeting between Jean and Agnès in the Bois de Boulogne. Jean immediately falls in love with Agnès, who, he thinks, is an innocent girl from the countryside. But Jean's unaware that there's more to this "chance" meeting than meets the eye.
