In this French comedy, Denis Diderot is part of an aristocratic circle which practices libertarian principles on the rural castle estate of the baron of Holbach and prints their forbidden publication, the Encyclopedie. Madame Therbouche, a flirtatious painter from the Prussian metropolis Berlin, arrives and convinces Diderot to pose for her in the nude all over the estate's park, leading to an argument with his wife Antoinette. These antics are witnessed by Holbach's brother the Cardinal, who is hunting for the illegal Encyclopaedia printers. To divert the Cardinal, the baroness confesses years of her real and imagined sins and then sends in every female on the estate to do the same.
