Nora (Marie Leuenberger) is a housewife and mother in a small village in the Swiss countryside. Every day, she drops her two sons off at school, cleans the house, cares for her grouchy live-in father-in-law, and assists her put-upon sister-in-law, Theresa (Rachel Braunschweig) with chores on the family farm. But Nora wants something more – specifically, she wants to return to work. However, her husband, Hans (Maximilian Simonischek), believes that a woman’s place is in the home, and reminds her that according to Swiss marriage law, he can actually forbid her from getting a job. Angered by this injustice and inspired by her rebellious niece, Hanna, Nora begins reading up on the women’s liberation movement.
