Drama spanning twenty years in the complex life and work of trailblazing bisexual French feminist author Violette Leduc (Emmanuelle Devos) and her relationship with the legendary Simone de Beauvoir (Sandrine Kiberlain) Violette Leduc, born out of wedlock at the beginning of the 20th century, encountered Simone de Beauvoir in the post-WWII years in St-Germain-des-Prés. The intense relationship between the two women would last their entire lives, a relationship based on the quest for freedom through writing for Violette and for Simone, on the conviction that she held the fate of an extraordinary writer in her hands.
