When his wife dies in childbirth, a proud aristocrat refuses to accept that his new offspring is a girl. He names her Oscar and brings her up as a boy, sharing her childhood with André, the son of a domestic servant. Twenty years later, the Lady Oscar gains the position as personal guard to the Queen of France, Marie Antoinette, whilst André works in the royal stables. At the royal court, Oscar gains many admirers, to the chagrin of André, who is hopelessly in love with her. Oscar insists that she and André belong to different worlds, but then André enlightens her that her world is about to disappear, swept aside by a national revolution.
