A drama with heart and passion, you’ll be captivated from the first note.
1921, the beginning of the Golden Twenties. Not far from Paris it is party day at Marguerite Dumont’s castle. Like every year, an array of music lovers gathers around a great cause at the owner’s place. Nobody knows much about this woman except that she is rich and that her whole life is devoted to her passion: music. Marguerite sings. She sings wholeheartedly, but she sings terribly out of tune. 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, and with the help of a has-been divo, she decides to train for her first recital in front of a crowd of complete strangers. Inspired by the life of Florence Foster Jenkins.
