At the beginning of the 20th century, Colette was a woman whose inner voice of writer was repressed forever. She is willing to do everything she can to promote her talent as a writer and enjoy the success she deserves. She comes from a small village and marries a charismatic and dominant Parisian known only as Willy, who is older than her. Under these auspices, she is initiated into the bohemian lifestyle in Paris where her creative appetite is triggered and deepened. Being ready to capitalize on his talent, Willy persuades his wife to write novels and suggests that he sign his name. The success of one of his novels turns Willy into a famous writer, and the two become a major attraction among celebrities of the time. But over time, the lack of recognition of his work begins to frustrate Colette.
