On the island of Britany, France in the late 18th century, occurs a forbidden fling between aristocrat Heloise and painter Marianne. Commissioned to do Heloise's wedding portrait, Marianne must study her model by day so she can paint the portrait at night due to Heloise's refusal to pose for portraits because of her reluctance to marry. The two women grow closer and gain attraction to one another as they share Heloise's first and last moments of freedom. After completing the painting, Marianne confesses what she's up to and destroys her work. Their bond is stronger than Heloise's distaste for a self portrait, and Marianne is able to freely paint a new one. Heloise's new portrait can no longer be called just a testament of their collaborative effort, but a test of love too.
