On the background of the historic turning point – the presidential election in Paris in 1981 – Hers describes the story of Elisabeth, who has just arrived at the turning point of her life. Her marriage is over, and in order to take responsibility for herself and her two growing children, she takes a night job on the radio. During the show she gets to know the free spirit, Talulah and takes care of her. Talulah experiences the warmth of a family home for the first time and instead conveys the spirit of risk-freeness and self-confidence that Elisabeth and her children need right now. Hers celebrates the prose of life and gives trivial moments a poetic dimension.
