Set in 18th century France, Marianne, a young painter, is commissioned to paint a wedding portrait of a young noblewoman and reluctant bride to be, Héloïse. Knowing that Héloïse has just come out of a convent and has previously refused to sit for portraits, Marianne disguises herself as the lady's companion by day in order to paint her portrait from memory by night. As the two become closer, they ignite in each other feelings that are passionate yet forbidden.
