By Cecile depicts Post-WWII France as it reels from war and recovery. In Paris, an orphan girl, finds refuge with an older man. He introduces her to nightclubs, intellectuals, artists (Jean Cocteau, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Eartha Kitt!), and non-monogamy.
When she falls for his mistress, she begins to live a life she deems worthy of writing about... but only under the pseudonym of her husband.
