Set in 1870s France, Rosalie, portrayed by the radiant Nadia Tereszkiewicz, is an extraordinary young woman harboring a secret.

Abel (Benoît Magimel), an indebted tavern owner unaware of her secret, marries Rosalie for her dowry.

When Rosalie defiantly decides to embrace her unconventional appearance, the central question emerges: Can Abel truly love her and see beyond her physical differences, once he discovers the truth?

Rosalie draws inspiration from the experiences of historical figures, weaving a passionate and empowering drama that serves as a beautifully crafted parable on intolerance and attitudes toward body diversity.

Directed by Stéphanie Di Giusto, known for her acclaimed debut The Dancer, Rosalie tenderly explores the triumph of hope and love in a world marked by prejudice.
