A group of cinematics spend a holiday in the French countryside. The film provides insight into their relationships, including that between a young man, Julien, and a local girl, Lili. Lili uses the opportunity to work her way into the cinematic world. She transfers her attentions from Julien to his mother's lover, an established filmmaker, who takes Lili on a trip to Paris.
A few years later Julien has become a filmmaker himself. His first film is inspired by the holiday with Lili. Lili, who is by now an established actress, learns about it and works herself into its cast, becoming the star of the production. However she does not resume her personal relationship with Julien, who remains faithful to his wife and young daughter.
