The movie is set in Nohant, in a rural estate owned by George Sand, located in central France. The estate hosts, among others, Eugène Delacroix, prima donna Pauline Viardot and sculptor Auguste Clésinger. There is also Frederic Chopin, then in a relationship with Sand, and her daughter Solange. When she sees that the love affair of the couple is coming to an end, she decides to seduce the composer. Music pieces by the Polish pianist featuring in the movie have been interpreted by the winner of the Chopin Competition Janusz Olejniczak, who is also the lead male actor.
