THE DIVINE ORDER
AVAILABLE NOW ON DVD AND DIGITAL
The Divine Order is set in Switzerland in 1971 where, despite the worldwide
social upheavals of the previous decade, women were still denied the right to
vote. When unassuming and dutiful housewife Nora (Marie Leuenberger) is
forbidden by her husband to take a part-time job, her frustration leads
to her becoming the poster child of her town’s suffragette movement.
Her newfound celebrity brings humiliation, threats, and the potential
end to her marriage, but refusing to back down, she convinces the
women in her village to go on strike...and makes a few startling
discoveries about her own liberation.
