1921, The beginning of the Golden Twenties. Not far from Paris. It is party day at Marguerite
Dumont's mansion. 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. 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. Despite her husband's reluctance, and with the help of a has-been divo,
both funny and mean, she decides to train for her first recital in front of a crowd of complete
strangers at the Opera.
Loosely inspired by the life of Florence Foster Jenkins.
