Marguerite

1921, The beginning of the Golden Twenties. Not far from Paris. It is party day at Marguerite Dumonts castle. Like every year, an array of music lovers gathers around a great cause at the owners 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. When a young, provocative journalist decides to write a rave article on her latest performance, Marguerite starts to believe even further in her talent. This gives her the courage she needs to follow her dream. Despite her husbands reluc­tance, and with the help of a has-been diva, both funny and mean, she decides to train for her first recital in front of a crowd of complete strangers.
