At 15, Adele (Adele Exarchopoulos) doesn't question it: girls go out with boys. Her life is changed forever when she meets Emma (Lea Seydoux), a young woman with blue hair, who will allow her to discover desire, to assert herself as a woman and as an adult. In front of others, Adele grows, seeks herself, loses herself, finds herself...
