At the beginning of the 20th century, Gabrielle Sidonie Colette, a woman of rebellious soul raised in rural areas, marries an intellectual fourteen years older than her and who calls herself 'Willy'. Willy introduces Colette to the artistic life of Paris at the time and she discovers his creative talent, which he uses to make Colette write novels and sign them under his name. This gives Willy great popularity and prestige in the 1920s, especially thanks to the series of books 'Claudine'. Despite having a prominent social position, Colette begins to feel used, and struggles to demonstrate her talent as a writer. Besides, her marriage begins to fall apart because of Willy's infidelities and that Colette begins to be attracted to women.
