Alexandre Crusoé and Fanfan are twenty when they meet for the first time. He understands very quickly that this unpredictable girl is the woman of her life and that she loves him; but he does not have the courage to deceive or leave Laure, with whom he flows peaceful days. The idea of walking in the footsteps of his parents inconstant panic. He dreams of stability and dreads the passionate fanatic who sleeps in him.
