1970s France. Twenty-something Delphine leaves her parents' country farm for the bright lights of Paris. She meets Carole (Cécile de France), a Parisian activist involved in the stirrings of the feminist movement. The spark of attraction between them is undeniable, and they embark on a passionate, all-consuming love affair.
Everything comes to a dramatic halt, however, when Delphine is called back to her parents’ farm when her father suffers a stroke. Carole is left desolate in the city, unable to picture life without the younger woman, and shortly afterwards she follows Delphine to the family home. It’s only when she ventures into Delphine’s world that Carole realises what is at stake for the two of them, when their love is tested by those closest to them.
