Switzerland, in the late 19th century. In the
village of Saint-Imier, residents live between
misery and exploitation, between ancient
stables and a watch industry still in its infancy.
Then a visit from Mikhail Bakunin, full of the
ardor of the recent Paris Commune, awakens
the idea that another life is possible.
Ten young women make the crazy bet to
build, on the other side of the world, a community
where “pure anarchy” would reign.
Valentine, the last survivor of the “ten little
anarchists,” narrates for us the story of this utopia,
in action which takes them from Switzerland
to Patagonia to Buenos Aires, via the island
of Robinson Crusoe.
Based on actual historical events, this is the
extraordinary epic of women united by a fierce
love of freedom, who chose to “rejoice in the unexpected
without losing the strength to rebel.”
