Agathe Villanova (Agnes Jaoui), a feminist with a role on the political scene, returns for ten days to her family home, in the South of France, to help her sister, Florence, to set their deceased mother's affairs in order. In that house, Florence lives with her husband and their children, but also with Mimouna, the housekeeper who came to France with Villanova family when they left Algeria, in the moment of independence. Mimouna's son, Karim (Jamel Debbouze), and his friend Michel Ronsard (Jean-Pierre Bacri) decide to make a documentary on Agathe Villanova, for a collection dedicated to the women who became successful. It's August. The weather is bad, it rains. It's not normal. But nothing is going to be normal.
