    • Synopsis
    • 1977, somewhere in the heartlands of the French middle class. Suzanne Pujol is a stay at home and submissive wife of a rich industrialist, Robert Pujol, who runs his umbrella factory with an iron fist and shows himself to be as disagreeable and despotic towards his children and wife, whom he notices no more than he notices a houseplant. Following a tough strike Robert takes leave to relax and Suzanne finds herself at the helm - making the factory functional again and improving conditions for the workers. However, things get complicated when Robert returns to reclaim his post.
