Several years after leaving the orphanage to which her father never returned for her, a young Coco finds herself working in a provincial bar. She’s both a seamstress for the performers and a singer, earning the nickname Coco from the song she sings nightly with her sister. A liaison with Baron Balsan gives her an entree into French society and a chance to develop her gift for designing increasingly popular hats. When she falls in love with English businessman Boy Capel further opportunities open up, though life becomes ever more complicated.
