We are in Macao in the epoch of the Portuguese occupation: a young man is a "bon-vivant", he has no respect for anybody, his life is a continuous race of alcohol, bets and paid sex. But he made a mistake: he mocked a young lady, not attractive at all, and he felt in disgrace with the high society of Macao and he was recommended to leave the town.
