Presentation text “Bad Girl”

Lise and Colas are in love and want to marry, contrary to the wishes of the widow Simone, Lisa’s mother, who wants her daughter to marry Alain, rich but stupid. Widow Simon has already arranged matters and has agreed with Thomas, Alan’s father, to marry the two young men. The only obstacle to the realization of the widow’s dream plan is Kolas, and the widow does her best to keep him away from Liz, but to no avail.

It’s harvest time. Thomas and Allen lead widow Simon and Liz to a picnic in the field. Farm workers gather and dance happily. Widow Simon is invited to dance with them. The party was interrupted by a storm and everyone was in a hurry to find shelter. Take the wind Alan.

Widow Simon and Liz are back home. Workers bring crops to the farm, and the widow leaves the house, not before Liz locks up in the house. Liz thinks of Colas, and imagines that they have many children together. Recovering from her dream, she finds Kolas embarrassed, causing her to suddenly appear in the piled-up crops.

Widow Simon returns home, and Liz and Colas desperately search for a place to hide. Finding a suitable place in the living room, Liz leads Colas to her room and back to the living room, before Simon’s widow enters the room. The widow asks Lisa to go to her room and put on her wedding dress for her marriage to Alan. Terrified, Liz remains motionless, but widow Simon pushes her into her room and shuts the door.

Thomas arrived at the home of widow Simon with his son Alan. A notary accompanies them, as a witness to Alan’s marriage to Liz. The workers, friends of Colas and Lisa, also meet. When the door to Lisa’s bedroom opens, Liz appears in her wedding dress with Colas. Thomas and Alan feel insulted and cancel the marriage. Thomas, Alan and the notary angrily leave the widow’s house. Liz and Colas beg widow Simon to give them their marriage blessing. Love triumphs and the widow succumbs to the demands of lovers. After celebrating the happy ending for Lise and Colas, they all leave, and the house remains quiet and deserted, until Alain returns to retrieve his forgotten kite. Thus, Alan remains happy with the love of his life – the kite.
