Synopsis

Pauline, a self-employed nurse in a mining district in the north of France,
raises her two children alone and cares for her father, a former steelworker.
Devoted and generous, her patients love her and count on her.

Yet nobody sees that Pauline, who finds herself facing an increasingly harsh
social reality, is slowly embarking on a path that no one in her family has
taken before. A rising nationalist party, in quest of respectability, is going
to take advantage of her popularity by making her its candidate in the
local elections...

“A film that deserves to be seen, thought about, and learned from”
