Morocco, 1968. The air is electric. Anything feels possible, and Mathilde is determined to celebrate it. Doesn’t she have the right to enjoy life, after dedicating her best years to the war and then to this farm?

Looking out at her elegant garden, Mathilde reflects on all she has achieved. Now in a newly independent country intoxicated by its own sense of freedom, she yearns for a radiant future.

But her babies are now grown up, and Mathilde is about to learn that life can take wild and unexpected turns.
