Inspired by true events. Reims, France, 1969. Paul Coutard is a 30 year-old sports journalist for the daily newspaper Le Champenois. Charming, childish and a womanizer, he does exactly what he pleases. But one day, his boss urges him to plan the newspaper's annual fair together with Emmanuelle Bruno, the discreet and beautiful executive assistant. Paul then has a crazy idea: to organize a women's football match, for the very first time. With Emmanuelle's help, the project grows to unexpected proportions, as does their romance. Along with their unique team of female players, Paul and Emmanuelle will turn the French football world upside down.
