At the turn of the twentieth century, Marie-France manages her brothel strictly and seriously. In this enclosed world, we follow the journey - often tragic, sometimes joyful - of Clotilde, Julie, Samira and Léa. Objects of fascination, fantasy and occasionally tenderness for their clients, the young women live their lives in a world that is destined to disappear.
