It is May 1968 and the youth of France are in revolt. Catherine, Yves and Herve are in the throes of a passionate three-way relationship, but when student uprising turn Paris into a revolutionary warzone, they flee to the countryside and set up a commune free from morals, taboos and sexual boundaries. However, the years of free love are short-lived, as their ambitions and pursuit of personal fulfillment leads to choices that will tear them apart. When Catherine's generation gives birth to another, equally revolutionary wave of excitable young adults it becomes apparent that they embody a very different world. Between the end of Communism and the beginning of gay liberation, cracks being to appear in the militant heritage that moulded the generation before them. Through their differences, relationships are severed, cultivated and reconciled against the backdrop of series of political and historical events that changed the world forever.
