For 1968, in the South of India, an utopian town develops and attracts inhabitants of all countries of the world. Auroville is an ambitious experience, a kind of laboratory from where will perhaps come out the ideal town of the future.
Founded by Mira Alfassa, known as "the Mother", companion of the yogi Sri Aurobindo, close to Pondichéry, Auroville is a space of dreams where the goal is "to realize Human Unity". Regrouping more than 1 800 persons of 40 different nationalities, this project is supported for his beginnings by the UNESCO and the Indian government.

As students and then teachers in the prewar Thirties, they ignore convention; they dream of leaving France and raising a child together; they travel to the USSR in the summer of 1935 in quest of the "new woman". Their paths diverge against the background of approaching war.
