Women of a small Swiss village campaign for the women’s right to vote ahead of the crucial 1971 ballot in this inspirational film.

“A young wife and mother living in a small village untouched by the revolutionary spirit of the 1960s, Nora lives a quiet life. But she’s encouraged by the actions of a formidable group of like-minded women to fight for her rights. The group of women band together in their small Swiss village and campaign for the right to vote, undeterred by the retaliations of their conservative neighbours. With a fantastic ensemble cast, Petra Volpe’s stirring film shines a light on a battle for justice and a historic, overdue victory.” (Sydney Film Festival)

effectively illustrates how peer pressure can influence the political process

writer/director Petra Biondina Volpe elevates them with an unerring focus on character, while the excellent ensemble deliver a genuine sense of sisterhood.
