While preparing a luxurious dinner for friends, Anne discovers there are only 13 guests and employs her loyal maid Maria to disguise as a mysterious Spanish noblewoman to even out the numbers. Maria falls for a dandy British art broker and their budding romance soon has Anne chasing her maid around Paris, reinventing the truth and finally plotting to destroy this most unexpected and joyous love affair. Spanish actress Rossy de Palma and Michael Smiley co-star. Studiocanal fully financed the project. Todd Slater brokered the deal on behalf of Blue Fox with Anne Chérel and Loubna Berrada on behalf of Studiocanal.
