Anne (Klarwein) and Frédérique (Michel) are sisters entering their teen years in 1963 Paris. Their life, like the world around them, is in full swing. Their personal struggles include the difficulties of divorced parents, getting their first period, discovering boys, and struggling with the confines of their strict school all while figuring out where they fit in the society around them. All the fiasco they undergo presents an opportunity for both a political and romantic awakening.
