Sweeping social change is reflected in intense personal experiences in this exuberant autobiographical drama from writer/director Catherine Corsini. In 1971 Delphine (Izïa Higelin) leaves the family farm for the freedom of the big city. In Paris, she meets Spanish teacher Carole (Cécile De France) and a group of militant activists in the feminist movement. Delphine finds their passion for change irresistible, and is drawn into a deeper relationship with Carole. But inevitably, Delphine cannot escape her roots, and when she is obliged to return home, Carole follows. A poignant, bittersweet remembrance of love.
