In this French drama, a group of revolutionary students experience rebellion, enlightenment, and change while establishing a commune devoted to free love, anarchy, and nudism. But 20 years pass, and they see their own children engage in a similar-styled rebellion against their parents' values.
The year was 1968: Catherine, Yves, and Herve were 20 years old, and the revolt in May has turned their lives upside down. Enamored by the concept of communal utopia, the three friends move into an abandoned farm in the Lot region and establish a commune. Over time, their longing for freedom and personal accomplishment finds many of the friends walking away from the micro-society they worked so diligently to establish. Flash forward to 1989, when Yves and Catherine's children witness the fall of communism and the onset of the AIDS epidemic. Much like their parents years ago, the disillusioned youths begin to question the generation that preceded them while longing for a better world than the one they were born into.
