After Vautrin helps Lucien overcome a mental breakdown, the two men decide to align forces in pursuit of social status and wealth. Operating under an alias, Vautrin offers to help Lucien redeem himself and move back to Paris, with the condition that Lucien follows his orders exactly. Happy to comply, the pair return to the capital city, living in excess and racking up a debt as they pretend they can afford this luxurious lifestyle. With a goal of gaining the attention and love of a wealthy woman, Vautrin helps Lucien appear to be an eligible and desirable bachelor. However, his plan is compromised when Lucien instead meets Esther, a beautiful sex worker. First trying to keep their relationship a secret from Vautrin, Lucien and Esther share an amorous connection. However, as the relationship continues, Lucien must choose between his newfound love, or the shallow charade he and Vautrin have cultivated. Though, the decision may not be his to make, and as always, Vautrin always has a plan.
