Paris, 1960. Jean-Louis lives a bourgeois existence absorbed in his work, cohabitating peacefully with his neurotic socialite wife Suzanne while their children are away at boarding school. The couple s world is turned upside-down when they hire a Spanish maid María. Through María, Jean-Louis is introduced to an alternative reality just a few floors up on the building s sixth floor, the servants quarters. He befriends a group of sassy Spanish maids, refugees of the Franco regime, who teach him there s more to life than stocks and bonds, and whose influence on the house will ultimately transform everyone s life.
