France, 1963. In a society that censures women’s desires and sex in general, Anne, a young woman, decides to have an abortion to finish her studies and escape the social constraints of a working-class family. This simple but cruel story follows a woman who decides to go against the law. And Anne has little time – with her exams just around the corner, and her baby bump growing fast.
