Three women, from three successive generations, whose destinies are intimately linked, will end up intertwined.
In the 1950s, Anna, orphaned by her mother and rejected by her father, is at the service of a bourgeois family. Harassed by the owner of the castle, she finds herself pregnant and must leave her job, leaving the child to the mistress of the house, who cannot have one.
Katel fled very early on from the large house in which she grew up to go to Paris, at the end of the 1960s, where she became involved in student revolts and especially in the feminist struggles whose cause she continues to champion.
Lucie also grew up in this bourgeois house and diligently studied law.
But contrary to the wishes of her grandmother, who raised her, it is the police that she wants to join as a police commissioner. Far from her native region, she finds herself having to investigate a series of rapes in 2012.
Each in their own way, Anna, Katel and then Lucie will have to stand up for themselves, thwart the conventions and prejudices of their time, to weaving once again the hidden ties of kinship that unite them and thus regain their full and complete identity.
