Episode 1 (20')
What if you read again your teen secret diary at 30. Would you dare realize all the dreams it contains?
Monica ‘Mo Ke’ is a brilliant young Chinese sommelier destined to a bright professional future at the Fouquet’s restaurant in Paris. A perfect, strict and organized life that will fall apart on a celebration awarding her young and promising career.
Shaken by a competitor who made her realize she knows all about wine, but nothing about passion, Monica comes across her teen secret diary. Love, family, friends, generosity… None of the promises she made herself were fulfilled!
Episode 2 – “Ex Model” (20')
It's the story of a girl who was under the spotlight, but who ends up under a mountain of problems! Very much inspired by Xin Wang's life as a Chinese model (and ex-model!) in Paris.
Within the extravagant Paris fashion world, Chinese immigrant in modeling agency, XinXin discovers suddenly that she has become too old to work, while she is not even thirty years old. Panicked with the idea of having to reinvent herself, XinXin tries various jobs to avoid falling into poverty… or worse, anonymity. On her path to a new life, XinXin faces harsh realities: having to pay when eating out, not being invited to parties anymore, having to wake up early, gaining weight, having wrinkles… In short, being a normal woman. With other models more competitors than friends, an agent procurer, discounted job plans, our (still) young Chinese is going through the hell of reconversion. An intrigue widely inspired from the life of author and lead actress, Xin Wang.
