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.

“The film works as an uncomplicated reminder of what can happen when disenfranchised women speak up.” - Chicago Reader

“The message here is that everyone has it in them - all it takes is a friend or two fighting for the same thing.” - Washington Post
