Set in Paris in the 1960s, Jean-Louis lives a bourgeois life absorbed in his work, with his neurotic socialite wife Suzanne. The couple’s world is turned upside-down when they hire a Spanish maid Maria.

He befriends a group of sassy Spanish maids, refugees of the Franco regime, who teach him there’s more to life than stocks and bonds.
