Delphine and Solange are twin sisters living in the French town of Rochefort. Delphine gives ballet lessons whilst Solange teaches music. Both are tired of their humdrum existence and hope to make names for themselves in Paris. Their mother, Yvonne, has ended up running a café after walking out on her boyfriend 10 years ago on account of his bizarre name, Monsieur Dame. She does no know that the same Monsieur Dame has recently returned to Rochefort to run a music shop frequented by her daughter Solagne. Maxence, an artist-poet on his military service, arrives in the town and paints a portrait of his ideal woman, which turns out to be Delphine. Meanwhile, Solange meets and instantly falls in love with an old friend of Monsieur Dame, the famous composer Andy Miller, although the two suddenly lose sight of each other.
