It is perhaps both a curse and a blessing to have been born as part of the Gainsbourg family. Charlotte Gainsbourg has now chosen an unusual way to come to terms with the sometimes difficult relationship with her mother Jane Birkin: by looking through the lens, she looks at her mother Jane Birkin in a way she never has before. With affectionate interviews and found footage, Charlotte Gainsbourg gets closer to her mother and both slowly overcome their shared reserve. A space opens up for the different facets of their mother-daughter relationship and their shared family history. Charlotte Gainsbourg is the middle daughter of Jane Birkin from her union with Serge Gainsbourg.

Charlotte Gainsbourg was born in London in 1971 as the daughter of English singer and actress Jane Birkin and French songwriter, singer and actor Serge Gainsbourg. She was raised in Paris. As an award-winning actress and singer, she has appeared in countless films. She has two half-sisters, photographer Kate Barry (1967-2013) and actress Lou Doillon, and a half-brother, musician Lulu. Her maternal grandmother was actress Judy Campbell. JANE BY CHARLOTTE is her directorial debut.
