Description

Swiss/Italian writer-director Petra Volpe takes us back to Swiss countryside of 1971, where little or nothing is felt of the huge social upheavals of May 1968. There, a young housewife and mother named Nora (Marie Leuenberger), lives with her husband and their two sons in a peaceful little village. She is a retiring, quiet person, well liked by everyone - until she becomes an unlikely suffragette leader and begins to campaign publicly and pugnaciously for women's right to vote, an issue that will be put before the male voters on February 7, 1971.
