In pre-Revolution Paris, the Marquise de Merteuil plots revenge against her ex-lover, the Comte de Bastide, who recently ended their relationship. To soothe her wounded pride and embarrass Bastide, she seeks to arrange the seduction and disgrace of his young virgin fiancée, Cécile de Volanges, who has only recently been presented to society after spending her formative years in the shelter of a convent. Merteuil calls on the similarly unprincipled Vicomte de Valmont to do the deed. Valmont declines, as he is plotting to seduce Madame de Tourvel, the wife of a member of Parliament away in Burgundy and a current houseguest of Valmont’s aunt, Madame de Rosemonde.

Amused and incredulous at Valmont’s hubris in pursuing the chaste, devoutly religious Tourvel, Merteuil ups the ante: if Valmont somehow succeeds in seducing Tourvel and can furnish written proof, Merteuil will sleep with him as well. Never one to refuse a challenge, Valmont accepts. Tourvel rebuffs all of Valmont’s advances. Searching for leverage, he instructs his page Azolan to seduce Tourvel’s maid Julie and gain access to Tourvel’s private correspondence. One of the letters intercepted is from Cécile’s mother and Merteuil’s cousin, Madame de Volanges, warning Tourvel that Valmont is a nefarious and untrustworthy individual.
