Alsace. The local homemaker school’s mission is to train its young students to become ideal housewives. To hold one’s home and to bend to marital duty without bending: that is what Paulette Van der Beck, the director assisted by her sister-in-law Gilberte and Sister Marie-Therese, ardently teaches. But on the eve of the events of May ’68, she will see all her certainties waver. Is it the return of his first love or the wind of freedom that blows on France? And if the good wife finally became a free woman?
