Lolita is in her early 20's, she's plump, and her main activity is attending the singing class of Sylvia Millet. She has a very low self-esteem because of her weight problem. Furthermore, Lolita is the daughter of Etienne Cassard, an egocentric publisher/writer, who doesn't see that what she only wants from him is some consideration.

Lolita's anger against her father grows each time she notices, or believes, that her friends associate with her only to have the opportunity to meet Etienne Cassard and get something from him. Now, even Sylvia Millet, her teacher, seems to take a special interest in her life since she's learned the professional status of her father. To tell the truth, this sudden interest in the young girl could be closely related to the fact that Pierre Millet, Sylvia's Millet, is a writer looking for some recognition.
