1915. France. At the beginning of WWI, the men are at the Front and women are replacing them at the work in the fields. To carry on her family farm, Hortense is forced to great sacrifices. To give her strength there are just her daughter and the young worker Francine. After the great success of Le Petit Lieutenent (2005), Nathalie Baye comes back behind Xavier Beauvois’ camera in an incredible journey in the past, scanned through the rhythm of the seasons and the wait of a faceless fear. Based on the novel by Ernest Pérochon, Les Gardiennes narrates the women: free, braves and in love, they walk tall toward a better future, surviving with dignity to their tragic fate
