Edith can hardly believe it when she learns that Fadila, her 60-year-old housemaid, is completely illiterate. So she decides to become Fadila's French teacher. But teaching something as complex as reading and writing to an adult is rather more challenging than she thought. Yet during these lessons, the oh-so-Parisian Edith and Fadila, an immigrant from Morocco, begin to understand one another as never before and from this understanding blossoms a surprising friendship. Edith will enter contact with a way of life that is unforgiving at times, but joyful and dignified.
