Martin Provost (Seraphine) returns with a humorous and satirical take on solidarity and gender equality featuring a first class cast. Paulette Van Der Beck (Juliette Binoche) and her husband Robert (François Berléand) have been running the housekeeping school of Bitche in Alsace for many years. Having at heart to train teenage girls to become the perfect housewives.
