In 19th-century France, Captain Neuville (Jean Dujardin) is called to the front, leaving his fiancée Pauline heartbroken. When she becomes despondent after not hearing from him, her sister Elisabeth (Mélanie Laurent) falsely pens Neuville’s letters. When the war ends and Neuville does not return home, Elisabeth furthers her ruse. Several years later, however, Elisabeth spies a destitute Neuville, newly back in town. She agrees to pay him to stay away from her family, but the captain has plans of his own.
