In a small village in the Alps all men have been raised by the troops of Napoleon III, who has proclaimed himself Emperor of France. The repression is aimed at communities reluctant to their mandate. It is planting time, and then the harvest and harvest will follow. Women do not know if their men will return. Tension, desire and uncertainty grow daily. One day, a stranger – a fugitive, a deserter, perhaps – appears to break the labor monotony. They make a pact of honor: sexually share this stranger, and thus preserve their survival. It is 1852 and education is not available to the rural population, much less women. Among the entire group there is only one maiden capable of reading, and this will be the link that will link the life of the outsider to this exceptional woman. The delicate balance is about to collapse.
