Loulou is an orphan young girl, who dreams to becoming a great dancer, but after the death of the good Father Menard she goes to live in the Orphanage of the nasty Madame Trochu, who makes every effort to prevent Loulou to fulfill her desire.
And who is the mysterious man that follows Loulou from a distance and that seems to know everything about her past? Are Loulou parents really dead?
Loulou series is a true melodrama, that holds the audience enthralled from the first to the last episode, set in a place and a time both become legendary!
From the glorious palace of the Opera, to the newly built Eiffel Tower, from the luxuries of the Faubourg St. Germain to the miserable streets of Butte Montmartre, we'll discover a mythical Paris and we'll meet fictional characters and really existed ones, like Degas, the famous painter, or the Lumière brothers.
In this colorful and optimistic age, when everything seemed possible, Loulou, her friend Gaby (a rabble of Montmartre, apprentice journalist) and their friends try to prevent and deny the nefarious plans of Baron De Boisrobert, who’s going to sacrifice and displace Montmartre to be a giant estate - and their struggle could also reveal Loulou’s mysterious past...
