The movie revolves around Gustave Eiffel (Romain Duris) as he finishes his collaboration on the Statue of Liberty and is pressured by the French government to design something spectacular for the 1889 Paris World Fair.
Eiffel simply wants to design the subway, but everything changes when he crosses paths with a mysterious woman from his past (Emma Mackey). Their long-lost, forbidden passion inspires him to build the iconic Eiffel Tower.
