Christmas 1877: It is the 40th birthday of Empress Elisabeth of Austria. In her role as representative at the side of her husband Emperor Franz Joseph, she is not allowed to express opinions, but must forever remain the beautiful young empress. To meet this expectation, she adheres to a rigid plan of starvation, sport, hairdressing and daily waist measurements. But Elisabeth is an inquisitive and life-hungry woman whose resistance to the larger-than-life image of herself grows and who no longer wants to live in a courtly corset.

Marie Kreutzer's film premiered at this year's Cannes Film Festival and was enthusiastically received there.
