70-year-old Nona Miou-Miou has always been an independent woman and has spent her life taking care of women at her family planning practice while raising three triplet daughters of her own. Her life is turned upside down when she finds herself unexpectedly pregnant. Her 44-year old daughters, Manu (Virginie Ledoyen), Gaby (Clothilde Hesme), and George (Valérie Donzelli) stand together to support their mom while facing the torments of their own lives.

In her first series, director Valérie Donzelli paints the portrait of an older woman woman shaken by her pregnancy, but buoyed by her family. Thanks to strong performances by the lead actresses and a collection of comical masculine roles, the series brings together a delightful ensemble cast. Valérie Donzelli delivers a joyous and fanciful tale of magical maternity, feminism, and family.
