At 15, Adèle doesn't question it: girls go out with boys. Her life is changed forever when she meets Emma, a young woman with blue hair, who will allow her to discover desire, to assert herself as a woman and as an adult. In front of others, Adèle grows, seeks herself, loses herself, finds herself...

"I was interested in developing a female character who was passionate about her professional life and wanted to pass on her enthusiasm... Each of us remembers that turning point in our school life when a passionate teacher... instilled the seeds of a vocation in us. But in the end my screenplay never reached fruition. So when I came across Julie Maroh's graphic novel, the story of absolute love between two women and, at the same time, of a young woman becoming a schoolteacher, I saw how I could link these two projects."
