In Madrid and in Paris, Boti, Empar, Micheline and Jocelyne, four lesbian women in their seventies tell of their fears, their desires, their differences…

They are still active, or activists, and will not give in to the passage of time; they refuse to be pushed aside because of their age. They look at others, and at society, with curiosity. They live their everyday lives to the fullest, taking advantage of all opportunities. They show us their world, their experiences, and their problems, and talk about their relationship with age.

Beyond the taboos, they reflect on their loves, past and present, because their love lives and sex lives are not yet over.
