When twenty-one-year-old Bellamy Artois returns to the coast of Saint de Vie to visit her wine aficionado grandfather for the summer, she falls eagerly back into step, daydreaming alongside her childhood friend, Appoline Alarie.
Vacationing on the seaside, Bellamy attempts to balance the affections of the village baker, while struggling to keep her growing infatuation with Appoline, internal and at bay. Together, the pair rediscover friendship and explore its confines, as deemed by society. The soundtrack of their summer is narrated by Paul Simon songs and the fantasy of French romance; melodious freedom begging to be inhaled and exhaled without any inhibitions.
