Numance (Arielle Dombasle), a wealthy woman who is known for her compassion and eagerness to help those less fortunate. When Therese loses her job after getting pregnant, Mme. Numance takes pity on the young couple, and invites them to move into the estate she shares with her husband (John Malkovich). Therese and Mme. Numance become close friends, and before long the lady of the house has come to regard Therese more as a daughter than as a guest. But some believe Therese might be using her friendship with Mme. Numance for her own gain, which in their eyes is confirmed when Therese borrows a large sum of money from her benefactors after Firmin develops legal trouble. Therese and Firmin are unable to pay back the Numances, and soon the wealthy couple falls on hard times, those watching these events unfold wonder if Therese deliberately brought the generous family to ruin, or is this is all a product of simple naivete? Alexandre Astruc helped to adapt the screenplay for Les Ames Fortes, based on the novel by Jean Giono, Astruc was also set to direct the project at one point, but after his unexpected death, Raul Ruiz stepped up to the director's chair...
