Deneuve and Dorléac are twin sisters waiting for the man of their life. They decide to go to Paris together but will find true love on their last week-end in Rochefort. Deneuve, a dancer, will fall in love with Perrin, a sailor and a painter, who has painted the portrait of Deneuve without having met her.
