Abandoned by their family at a young age, Antoinette and Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel have grown up under the guidance of nuns preparing them for simple lives as the wives of tradesmen or shopkeepers. At night, their secret stash of romantic novels and magazine cutouts beneath the floorboards are all they have to keep their dreams of the future alive. The walls of the convent can’t shield them forever, and when they’re finally of age, the Chanel sisters set out together with a fierce determination to prove themselves worthy to a society that has never accepted them. But their lives are again thrown into turmoil when World War I breaks out, forcing them to make irrevocable choices.
