Nora is a young housewife and mother who lives in 1971 with her husband and two sons in a quiet Swiss village. Here little is known about the social upheavals of the 1968 movement. The village and family peace, however, dwindles as Nora begins to work for women's voting rights.

'Leuenberger makes Nora's gradual awakening to gender issues feel like the sun coming out on a dreary day, brimful of unexpected warmth.' - Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
