Film and discussion
Maria has found her calling in her work as a cleaner. She is thorough, conscientious and dedicated, only sometimes a little clumsy. She also pursues another passion: she writes poetry, which she doesn't share with anyone - especially not with her indifferent husband, who doesn't understand her interest in the fine arts. So he cannot understand Maria's enthusiasm when she accepts a new job at the Académie des Beaux-Arts in Paris. There, Maria immerses herself in a glamorous world that is completely foreign to her: she quickly makes friends with the modern, cosmopolitan students and the janitor Hubert. He knows the academy inside out, having spent almost every minute among the works of art for decades. The chemistry between the grumpy oddball and the cleaner is instant. Maybe it's because of his Elvis hip swing, which he secretly practices in the office?
Maria soon takes a liking to her new life and Hubert is always by her side as her zest for life reawakens. Will she find the courage to start all over again?
