Suzanne Pujol is a decorative wife: she runs a household, while her imperious and philandering husband runs the family umbrella factory with 300 employees. While he recuperates from a heart attack during a labor dispute, she brings her two adult children into the factory. Through shrewd use of both her values and an old connection to Babin, the leftist mayor and MP, she gets things moving again. Her husband’s return, her daughter’s shaky marriage, and the torch Babin carries for her become formidable obstacles.
