In 1960, small town France, newcomers Viane and her young daughter Anouk open a chocolate shop at the beginning of Lent, meeting much skepticism. The town's small-minded mayor Comte de Reynaud strives to shut her down, but her warm personality and incredible chocolates manage to win over many town folks. Things shake up when a group of river drifters led by Roux arrive in town.
