47-year-old professor Nadia appears fulfilled, but as she enters menopause she struggles with tension in her marriage, the physical and psychological symptoms of aging, and her fraught relationship with her eighteen year old daughter, Sarra. With the men in the film largely taking a background position, Nadia et Sarra focuses on the relationships between women: those of friends, housekeeper/servant, student/teacher, and particularly the relationship of mother and daughter as they experience the oppositionally difficult stages of menopause and adolescence.
