    Documentary

    They are single, widowed or divorced; they have had children, husbands, work; they have a life behind them, but also one to come… The film reveals the intimate lives of five women in their sixties who are waging a discreet daily battle against solitude. It's true that men often prefer younger women, it's true that one feels invisible in a youth-oriented society, but these women are not finished, far from it!
