An actress prepares to play the singer Barbara as the film shoot is about to start. She rehearses, works on her character, sings, dances, reads her script, moves in and out of her role. Whilst she relives the singer’s life, the actress finds herself overwhelmed by her own performance and absorbed by the singer’s aura. The film director observes her, films her and gets drawn into the actress’ transformation and interpretation.

Actor-writer-director Mathieu Amalric (also in Ismael’s Ghosts) and actor-singer Jeanne Balibar pay a memorable tribute to Barbara, one of France’s most unusual and gifted mid-20th century chanteuse, rendering her prodigious talent and undiminished emotional pull.
