WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Sentenced by her parents to a life in the convent, Manon escapes to Paris with her young lover, the student Chevalier des Grieux. Lured away by the glamorous life offered by an elderly patron, Manon's true feelings for her first love are rekindled when des Grieux suddenly reappears. But when she refuses to abandon her jewels, her wealthy benefactor plots a revenge that sends foolish, frivolous Manon to despair in a distant land.
