Spring 1958, France. 21-year-old Rose Pamphyle (Déborah François) lives with her widowed father, a grumpy man who runs a village shop. Rose is engaged to the son of a local mechanic and it seems that her destiny will be a quiet life as a housewife. But that is not the life she desires. She travels to Lisieux in Normandy where she undergoes an interview for a job as a secretary for an insurance company headed by the very charismatic Louis Echard (Romain Duris). The interview turns out disastrously, but Rose at least shows that she can type incredibly fast. Unwittingly, the young woman manages to awaken Louis's sports-fan tendencies. Under his tutelage, Rose enters her first typing competition. But the road to the real trophies is complicated. Love of sport and love of women can sometimes get in the way.
