Inspired by his mother and her friendships, director Jean-Jacques Zilbermann shapes a captivating drama of three Auschwitz survivors reuniting in post-war France. As Hélène rebuilds her life, she reunites with fellow Auschwitz survivors Lily and Rose. Despite their shared grief and sorrow, each refuses to sacrifice their happiness to the past. Set amidst the panoramic vibrancy of the 1960s and featuring immaculately compelling performances, Zilbermann paints a soaring depiction of three women and their unyielding courage against the darkest tragedies.
