The path of three women cross in Besco, a small isolated island facing an important economic crisis.

Félixe, an idealistic Canadian, elected as a federal deputy at only 25 years old, Danielle, a strong and confident woman in her mid 40s, President of Besco, and Emily, a talented American mediator in her 30s leading negotiations between both countries.

Dealing with the political conflict about the exploitation of Besco’s natural resources will bring these women to question how they wish to balance work with their personal lives.

Under pressure, will they remain faithful to themselves and their values?
