Bernadette is a middle-class mother from the big city who takes off for the countryside with her five-year-old son to discover her “true nature.” She becomes an "earth mother" and the centre of a community that looks to her for salvation. There, she also meets a local farmer, Thomas, who is organizing people politically.
