Summary

A collection of home movies, diaries and letters from the last summer before the start of the Second World War reveal how far the impending conflict was away from the minds of ordinary French people. The film describes the final weeks of peace in France and the mix of blindness, denial and prophetic clear-sightedness of those facing the war that was about to unfold.
