Carlotta, the daughter of an Italian count, refuses to flee from Bonaparte's troops and instead amuses herself by flirting with the Frenchmen. Unfortunately, seven of these soldiers, including Duprat and Dorgeval, behave so badly that she decides to lock them in the dungeons. The soldiers manage to free themselves and take their beautiful host prisoner. Carlotta manages to get the upper hand a second time, but when the seven men are captured by the Austrians, she joins forces with the women of the region to get them released.
