    • Metz, East of France, 1959.
      Michel and Hélène Aubertin form a perfect couple. Michel is an ambitious notary and Hélène divides her time between charity work and raising their son Jacky. There is nothing unusual about them apart from the fact that Michel has a dark secret: every weekend, he goes to Les Épicéas, his house in the Vosges forest, to become Mylène beneath the gaze of Flavia, an experienced transvestite and his former comrade in arms during the phony war.
      Determined to devote himself to his election as chairman of his professional association and to his role as a husband and father, Michel ends this double life and puts the house on the market.
      But Michel is soon overcome by his urges once more. Under Flavia’s influence, the house in the forest becomes the Villa Mimi, the rallying point for a small group of men who play freely at being women.
      This utopia cannot last: Pascal, a young deserter from the Algerian War, seeks refuge at the Villa and Hélène begins to ask herself some serious questions about her husband’s mysterious absences…
