However, when she meets the 20-year-old Balthazar (Pierre Niney), a series of misunderstandings brings out the inner cougar: she suddenly finds herself with a new image and enhanced career prospects.
But can Alice keep up the sizzling new façade? And what happens when her sham relationship with Balthazar becomes something more serious?
