In Tonie Marshall’s film Number One, the marvelous Emmanuelle Devos plays an ambitious corporate manager, also named Emmanuelle, who dreams of becoming the first woman to lead a major French company.

Emmanuelle is tireless and determined in her pursuits. Currently working as a corporate team leader, she has her eyes set on a promotion but is always passed over despite her hard work and success. When she finally does get the chance, her place at the top is quickly threatened by personal and political factors—her father has a stroke, the lobbyist who championed Emmanuelle for the job suddenly dies and her husband and daughter wait somewhat impatiently on the sidelines. Meanwhile, others work behind the scenes to pull the rug out from under her. Within the chaos, Emmanuelle forges a way through the obstacles and setbacks, only to find herself at another trial—facing herself.
