The dreams and naivete of Charlotte, a young, working-class girl (Charlotte Gainsbourg in an award-winning performance) clash with reality as she meets the young pianist she admires (Clothilde Baudon), and a younger pest she would like to shed (Julie Glenn). Charlotte is surrounded by a drab life in her rundown neighborhood and is saddled with a crass brother and a father whose attention is elsewhere. Life picks up a little color when a new friend comes into the picture, a pianist from the other side of the tracks who is going to give a recital in town. The more sophisticated pianist jokes that maybe Charlotte should be her manager, and that sets off a series of misunderstandings that lead to some pretty wild moments.
