Soulful and subtle, this multi-layered social drama revolves around Vianne Rocher (Juliette Binoche), a young, single mother, who is also an expert chocolatier. Vianne's romantic and nomadic spirit never lets her settle down anywhere, and she keeps drifting across Europe, along with her daughter Anouk (Victoire Thivisol),
When they reach a quiet, conservative French village that closely adheres to tradition, something within Vianne is affected, and she decides to open a chocolate shop - with Sunday hours - across the street from the local church, much to the displeasure of the village's Mayor. How will Vianne and her delicious chocolate influence the villagers? In turn, how will the village and its inhabitants affect her life? Will her nomadic spirit finally find its home?
