In Paris, 1964, carefree young Madeleine (Ludivine Sagnier) steals a gorgeous pair of high heels, and whilst wearing them is mistaken for an escort; an error that signals the next direction her life will take. But she soon falls for and marries a suave Czech doctor, Jaromil (Rasha Bukvic), leaving Paris for Prague. Thirty years later we follow Madeleine's daughter, Véra (Chiara Mastroianni), a lovely but reckless young woman whose romantic life is no simpler than that of her mother. She has a sometime-lover Clément (Louis Garrel) but on a trip to London falls for an American (Paul Schneider), a man who'll prove incapable of devoting himself to her. Meanwhile in Paris, a re-married Madeleine (Catherine Deneuve) has rekindled her love affair with Jaromil (now played by Milos Forman).
