    • Synopsis
    • A magical summer interlude, like a secret gift, awaits a renowned
      young woman in a dark moment in history when she reluctantly
      accepts an invitation to a couple's farmhouse in the South of
      France.
      Based on a true episode in the young life of the charismatic
      French philosopher Simone Weil, this was the charming historic
      encounter with her host, Gustave Thibon, the "philosopher
      peasant" who would later posthumously publish one of her most
      famous manuscripts.
      Under the spell of this "enchanted land" of vineyards, lavender,
      and the Provencal sun, Simone, Gustave and his wife Yvette live
      a unique and precious moment of intimacy. As teasing,
      complicity, and jealousies give way to love and laughter, the
      power of sheer joy makes even time stop for a moment in
      occupied France
