Description

Set in Switzerland in 1971, where despite the worldwide social upheavals of the previous decade, women were still denied the right to vote. When an unassuming and dutiful housewife Nora Leuenberger is forbidden by her husband to take a part-time job, her frustration leads to her becoming the poster child of her town’s suffragist movement.
