Autors Antoine Desrosières & Anne-Sophie Nanki
Director Brigitte Roüan
In 1835, George Sand is getting a divorce. Her lover – and lawyer – Michel de Bourges represents her. Once a rich woman, Sand is determined to get back the money that her husband has been squandering, as well as the custody of her two children. Michel would like George Sand to carry on in court the fight for women’s freedom and equality she has been advocating in her books. Sand won’t have it. To convince the jury, she keeps her beliefs secret. Sand and Michel’s disagreements threaten to jeopardize their relationship. The writer’s stormy, outrageous life is then brought out into the open. Will they pull through unharmed?
