Synopsis

At the Theatre Des Champs-Elysées, Igor Stravinsky premieres his Rite Of Spring. Coco Chanel attends the premiere and is mesmerised… But the revolutionary work is too modern, too radical: the enraged audience boos and jeers. A near riot ensues. Stravinsky is inconsolable. Seven years later, now rich, respected and successful, Coco Chanel again meets Stravinsky – a penniless refugee living in exile in Paris after the Russian Revolution. The attraction between the two is immediate and electric. Coco offers Stravinsky the use of her villa in Garches so that he will be able to work, and he moves in without delay – with his children and consumptive wife. And so a passionate, intense love affair between two creative giants begins...
