In the 1930s and 40s, the priest Jean Viollet, an abbot in French Normandy, was publishing a review which would answer the wide-ranging very practical sexual questions of his readers. How can we love each other without having eight children? Why is pleasure guilty? How to reconcile catholic morality and conjugal love? Using the letters, the film unfolds a portrait of rural France, the ignorance, the fears, the will to be part of the flock and a constant obsession for repressing sexuality.
The script is based on a book L'Amour en toutes lettres, questions à l'abbé Viollet sur la sexualité (1924-1943).
