It’s 1971 and in affluent Switzerland, women do not have the right to vote. Housewife Nora’s sense of injustice stirs when her husband refuses to let her work. In the run-up to a new referendum on women voting, Nora bands together with a rabble of hippies, grannies and other outsiders, and a surprising suffrage movement is born. These women discover old grievances, family secrets and flower power, in a journey as radical as it is every day.
‘Radiates an infectious admiration for the courage shown by its heroines in the face of immense obstacles.’ Variety
