    • Synopsis
    • The story takes place in Carhaix, in the heart of Brittany.
      In the local cottage hospital, the peaceful maternity unit has few births to deal with. Mathilde, a midwife, Firmine, a pediatric nurse, and Louise, owner of the Carhaix bowling alley, all live in the town, three friends enjoying life.
      Then along comes Catherine, a HR director sent in to restructure the hospital – a task which involves closing down the loss-making maternity unit.
      These four women of different ages, backgrounds and convictions will nonetheless form a quartet united by their humanity and humour to defend
      the maternity unit.
