Paris, 1960. Jean-Louis (Fabrice Luchini - POTICHE) lives a bourgeois existence absorbed in his work, cohabitating peacefully with his neurotic socialite wife Suzanne (Sandrine Kiberlain - MADEMOISELLE CHAMBON) while their children are away at boarding school. The couple's world is turned upside-down when they hire a Spanish maid Maria (Natalia Verbeke).
Through Maria, 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 - Concepción (Carmen Maura), Carmen (Lola Duenas), Dolores (Berta Ojea), Teresa (Nuria Sole), Pilar (Concha Galan) - 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.
