Mathilde (de Laâge) is a French Red Cross medic in Poland in 1945, who has to care for a group of nuns and novices who have become pregnant after being raped by Russian soldiers.

Jean-Pierre Werner (Cluzet) is a country doctor devoted to the people and the area he serves; when he's diagnosed with an inoperable tumour he reluctantly accepts the help of recently graduated doctor Nathalie (Denicourt).
