Summary
Gaston, a rich playboy and is the scion of a wealthy Parisian family, wants to find emotional refuge from the superficial lifestyle of upper class Parisian 1900s society. Weary of the conventions of society, he seeks refuge with the former mistress of his uncle and her outgoing, tomboy granddaughter, Gigi. Her aunt instructs Gigi in how to be a courtesan. When Gaston becomes aware that Gigi has matured into a woman, her grandmother and aunt urge the pair to act out their roles. But a surprise twist happens when the platonic relationship turns into something more
