Encouraged by a sarcastic journalist, a rich French woman who sings terribly out of tune decides to pursue a career in music.

1921, not far from Paris. It is party day at Marguerite Dumont's castle. Nobody knows much about this woman except that she is rich and that her whole life is devoted to her passion: music. Marguerite sings wholeheartedly, but terribly out of tune. Marguerite has been living her passion in her own bubble, and the hypocrite audience, always coming in for a good laugh, acts as if she was the diva she believes she is. When a young, provocative journalist decides to write a rave article on her latest performance, Marguerite starts to believe even further in her talent. This gives her the courage she needs to follow her dream. Despite her husband's reluctance, she decides to train for her first recital in front of a crowd of complete strangers.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS FILM IS IN FRENCH, WITH DUTCH SUBTITLES.
