Through her beauty and charm, a young woman manages to escape the working class and acquire an important place in the court of Louis XV.
As a working-class woman, the young Jeanne Vaubernier yearns for a higher status, an almost impossible dream that still comes true because of her charms; step by step she manages to climb the social ladder. When she meets King Louis XV, it is love at first sight. She becomes his courtesan. A scandal at Versailles, because no one wants a street girl at court. Opening film of the Cannes Film Festival.
