In the working-class district of old Marseille, Rosa is the heart and soul of her community, a nurse and the matriarch of a large and close-knit family. But approaching retirement and surrounded by political inertia, she is feeling disillusioned. Until she meets Henri and realises it is never too late to fulfill her own political and personal dreams.

Robert Guédiguian is back to his Marseille roots with this militant and hopeful portrait of a woman (Venice Best Actress winner Ariane Ascaride) in the midst of inspirational changes.

Followed by a live virtual Q&A with director Robert Guédiguian
