A small town in Normandy is shaken up when a British couple moves in next door to the town’s baker. The baker immediately gets fascinated with the wife, the eponymous Gemma, a beauty who quickly becomes filled with ennui in the stifling small town. The baker decides to give Gemma some private baking lessons in an attempt to woo her, but is disheartened when she starts an affair with an aristocratic young man. As the baker starts to spy on Gemma he realizes her similarities to the protagonist of his favorite book, Gustave Flaubert’s "Madame Bovary", and attempts to stop the affair so it won’t end in tragedy. Exploring people’s tendency to project imagined narratives onto people, "Gemma Bovery" offers a take on Flaubert’s story closer to farce than tragedy.
