Isidore Lechat is a ruthless industrialist, a predator with no scruples and a symbol of a new breed of capitalists to emerge around 1900. Even his closest relatives must serve his money-grubbing schemes. When death takes his son and when his daughter escapes from an arranged marriage, however, it is a blow to his power and his vanity. TV adaptation of Mirbeau's 1903 comedy.
