Piaf was born in the middle of the First World War in Paris in 1915 and was abandoned by his parents. Her father went to war in 1916 and left her with her grandmother to grow up in a brothel.
As a 14-year-old, she survives by singing in the streets of Paris until she is discovered by an agent who takes her under his wings and builds a career for her as a renowned singer in Paris and eventually even abroad.
