Georgia Mann with a look at the importance of money and the haute bourgeoisie in Debussy's Paris. She walks in the footsteps of Marcel Proust, in the affluent area around the Parc Monceau and visits one of the most luxurious private houses of the period, that of Eduard Andre and his wife Nelie Jacquemart. A house, built in 1875 and bequeathed to the state in 1913 and which is still much as it was in their day.
