The situation is not made any easier by feminism and the sexual revolution, which are changing society and the world around us overnight. To save the school, Paulette joins forces with her first love – André (Edouard Baer), her eccentric half sister Gilberte (Yolande Moreau) and her strict nun Marie-Thérèse (Noémie Lvovsky).
