Synopsis


Sophie, a quiet and shy maid working for the upper-class family Lelievre, hides her illiteracy under the cloak of a perfect household and obedience. She finds a friend in the energetic and uncompromising post-master Jeanne, who encourages her to stand up against her bourgeois employers. Things start to escalate as the Lelievres find out that Sophie can't read and has brought Jeanne into their house against their wish.

Sofî, ew kiça bêdeng û şermîn ko jibo mezine-malbata Lêlîverê dixebitit, nexwandewariya xwe di bin ebakê malbateka bêkêmasî û binemariya xwe ve vedişêrit. Ew hevaleka çeleng û sozdar li nivîsîngeha nameyan bi navê Jînê peyda dikit, Jîn piştevaniya wê dikit ko li dijî damezrînerên xwe yên malmezin rabiwestit. Tişt hêdî hêdî derdikevin dema ko Lêlîverî pê dihesin ko Sofî neşêt bixwînit û Jîn li dijî hez û xwastekên wan înaye nav mala wan.
