As Albertine calmly awaits her “second death,” she is visited by the women she used to be. With the help of her sister Madeleine, at once her confidante and rival, the five Albertines exchange their experiences and memories, and recall their suffering, their heartbreaks, and their brief moments of happiness. Seventy-year-old Albertine’s serene reflection finally allows her to free herself from the rage, shame, and guilt that broke her life; she makes peace with the lost Albertines — engulfed in anger at 30, in bitterness at 40, finding renewal at 50, and in despair at 60.
