The struggles of a staid publisher and a rumpled novelist to adapt to the new digital media world, and the impermanence thereof, is complicated (because this is a French comedy) by adultery.

Non-Fiction is set in the Parisian publishing world, and change is on the horizon-namely, the impact of the digital age on literature as an art. On the side of change is Alain (Guillaume Canet), a renowned editor cautiously trying to lead his publishing house into the 21st century. Firmly on the side of staying the same is Leonard (Vincent Macaigne), a technophobe writer whose latest novel Alain is about to reject. Change is not only affecting these characters' professional lives, but their personal lives as well. Leading the "digital transition" at the publishing house is Laure, the ambitious new hire with whom Alain is having an affair. Meanwhile, Alain's wife Selena (a marvelous Juliette Binoche) has been involved with Leonard for years.
