Fall 1974, French President Valéry Giscard d’Estaing puts his Health Minister, Simone Veil, in charge of a daunting task: to carry the abortion law.

Diane, a young journalist, makes it the subject of her first investigation, and discovers over her explorations a considerable changing of the women’s social status.
