It's 1913, Paris and Coco Chanel is infatuated with the rich and handsome Boy Capel, but she is also bound to her work. Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring is about to be performed and the revolutionary dissonances of his work parallel Coco's radical ideas. She wants to democratise women's fashion and he wants to redefine musical taste. Coco attends the first performance of The Rite, which is criticized as being too modern and too foreign. Coco is moved by the ballet; however, Igor is inconsolable. 7 years later, Coco is wealthy and successful but heartbroken after her lover's death in a car crash. Igor, following the Russian Revolution, is now a penniless refugee living in exile in Paris. One day, he is introduced to Coco by Diaghilev, a ballet impresario. The attraction between them is instant, prompting Coco to invite Igor, along with his wife and kids, to stay at her new villa in Garches - an invitation that ignites a passionate affair between the two artists.
