Summary, etc.:
Two of French cinema's biggest stars shine in this bittersweet drama about the unlikely friendship that develops between Claire, a talented but tightly wound midwife, and Beatrice, the estranged, free-spirited mistress of Claire's late father. Though polar opposites in almost every way, the two come to rely on each other as they cope with the unusual circumstance that brought them together.
