“Provost has made a name for himself with indelible portraits of women, but reaches new heights with this exquisite depiction of feminine strengths and frailties”~Madman Entertainment

Aroview: Two of French cinema's most beloved actors, Catherine Deneuve and Catherine Ford, team up in this rich character study by the director of SERAPHINE. Ford plays a midwife and single mum whose quiet, focussed life is disrupted both by her local community ward being shut down and the sudden intrusion of her deceased father's vivacious mistress (Deneuve).
