Igor Stravinsky has the premiere of his The Rite Of Spring at the Theatre Des Champs-Elysees. Coco Chanel is in the audience and is mesmerized. But his revolutionary work is too modern and too radical for the audience who voice their discontent and direct their wrath at it. Stravinsky is inconsolable.
Seven years later, Coco Chanel is now wealthy, respected and successful. When she meets Stravinsky he is a poverty stricken refugee living in exile in Paris after the Russian Revolution. Despite their different circumstances, their attraction to each other is spontaneous and electric.
When Coco offers Stravinsky the use of her villa in Garches to enable him to pursue his work, he doesn't hesitate and moves in immediately, with his children and consumptive wife. And so a passionate, intense love affair between two creative giants begins...
