Set in the spring of 1958, "Populaire" follows Rose, a young woman who dreams of something more than the drudgery-filled life of a housewife. She travels to Lisieux, Normandy and interviews to be a secretary in an insurance agency. While she fumbles the interview, she reveals her exceptional typing skills to her charming boss, Louis. He sees an opportunity to transform Rose into a typing champion and begins to train her for speed typing competitions. Rose is determined to take control of her life and agrees to type for Louis. Find out what happens with Rose and Louis!
