Lucien de Rubempré (Benjamin Voisin) is an ambitious and unknown aspiring poet in 19th century France. He arrives in Paris on the arm of his admirer, Louise de Bargeton (Cécile de France), and makes a new friend in another young writer, Etienne Lousteau (Vincent Lacoste), who introduces him to the business of journalism. Lucien agrees to write rave reviews for bribes, achieving material success at the expense of his conscience and soon discovering that the written word can be an instrument of both beauty and deceit.
