Marie is facing a personal crisis. She has been with her boyfriend Eric for 14 years and they just bought an apartment and committed to a mortgage together. This is too much for her; she suddenly feels like she is suffocating. A sudden encounter with a handsome and audacious man forces her to make a decision—break up with Eric and embrace her freedom at any cost. Marie ends up living with her co-worker Sandra, a flirty single who introduces her to all of her nutty all-single girlfriends. In their company, Marie experiences how it is to be 30 and single for the first time. It starts with a lot of fun, with crazy parties and random guys. But she then discovers a tough reality: at her age, being single is quickly perceived as a suspicious defect. Nonetheless, thanks to a bunch of independent and hilarious women, Marie learns to consider her new life as a chance to learn a little bit more about a different side of herself. In her second feature, Mona Achache creates a fizzy comedy carried by a charismatic and comic female cast.
