This documentary delves into the life of revered French actress Leslie Caron, from her early days as a young girl, plucked from her ballet studio by Gene Kelly himself to star in An American in Paris, to now, at age 83, as she prepares to leave her home in Paris to move to London, and every moment in between.

Leslie, along with director Larry Weinstein, revisit some of the most seminal moments of her life, from the influence of the Nazi occupation on her childhood, to working with some of Hollywood's most talented performers like Fred Astaire and Cary Grant, and, finally, to the toll Hollywood ultimately took on her.
