1920s in Les Landes. A huge industrial forest. A social crisis on the horizon. For 35-year-old Liena, it's time to get serious. When her eccentric husband passes away, she suddenly inherits his entire estate and his outlandish dream of equipping his land with electricity. Liena is determined to make this "electric dream" come true, no matter what the cost. But no one else wants it: neither her own people nor the unions. She digs in for the fight but finds out she's wrong, and ends up looking squarely at her homeland. In the end, she manages to connect with the modernity inside her and senses the presence of an entirely different dream: a different social order as well as a different emotional order, beyond the suffocating reality of her environment.
