It's the spring of 1958 in a village in Normandy. 21-year-old Rose (Déborah François) aspires to be more than just a housewife or an assistant at her father's small-town grocery, so she moves to another town and applies for a job as a secretary. Rose discovers, unfortunately, that she is a terrible secretary; she proves, however, to be a devilishly good typist. Her handsome boss, Louis (Romain Duris) takes her under his wing, and resolves to turn her into the fastest typist in the world. Rose is swept into a life of training, as if typing were an Olympic sport, as Louis coaches her to become a regional, national, and eventually an international speed-typing competitor. Rose's final challenge will be found at a typing competition in New York City. Find out if romance and speed-typing mix in this high- concept 1950s-era French romantic comedy that combines a Mad Man aesthetic with an I Love Lucy sensibility.
