The movie opens in 1950's Paris, as a 70 year old Coco, is embarking on the second wave of her career with her first new collection in a decade.

Young Coco is seen working tirelessly as a seamstress, showing a unique talent for making garments more flattering and convenient despite her lowly position.

Pursued by a rich man named Étienne, she soon leaves the thankless job for the comfort of life as a kept woman, but class differences eventually tear them apart.
