Madame Loisel is a woman who feels she is deprived of luxuries she deserves. One day her husband comes home with a letter to one of the most luxurious events, but, for whatever reason, she is unhappy...
What do you expect me to wear if I go? I have nothing.
I will give you 400 francs to buy a dress.
Madame Loisel bought a dress, yet she did not seem satisfied...
I have no jewels to wear!
Go and see your friend Madame Forestier and ask her to lend you some jewels.
What is wrong, my dear?
During the party, everyone noticed Madame Loisel. She stood out.
After the party, Madame Loisel cannot find the necklace. Her husband looks everywhere , but has no luck. They buy a new necklace for a fortune, having no choice.
Madame Loisel works for 10 years trying to pay off the debt. She changes due to stress, but when she pays it off, she feels free and prideful.
Madame Loisel sees Madame Forestier, who hasn't changed at all. She hesitates to approach her, but still does. In their conversation, Madame Loisel decides to tell her story, now that the debt is payed off...
I worked ten years and payed the fortune that your necklace cost.
Oh no, Madame! The necklace was just paste, nothing close to what you payed for it!
