Continuing seventeen years after Arcand's The Decline of the American Empire, the film centres on an exploration of the characters first met in the original film and their children, newly introduced. The older generation are still largely social-democrats and proponents of Quebec nationalism, but both political and economic developments after the “Quiet Revolution” of the 1960s, as well as their own aging, make their left-wing stance seem somewhat anachronistic.

Delphine (Izïa Higelin) est une fille d'agriculteurs qui exploitent une ferme dans le Limousin. Célibataire endurcie pour ses parents, elle entretient en réalité une relation amoureuse avec une jeune femme. Mais très vite, cette dernière la quitte pour se marier avec un homme afin d'avoir une situation acceptable aux yeux des habitants de la région. Cette déception amoureuse pousse Delphine à changer de mode de vie et elle monte faire des études à Paris, où elle arrive en 1971. Elle loge dans une chambre de bonne. Un jour, elle voit dans la rue un groupe de femmes qui courent et mettent la main aux fesses des hommes au passage en criant des slogans féministes. Lorsqu'un passant réagit violemment contre l'une des femmes, Delphine intervient, repousse l'homme et s'éloigne spontanément avec le groupe. Ce sont des étudiantes de la Sorbonne qui font partie du Mouvement de libération des femmes (MLF). La jeune femme que Delphine a tirée d'affaire, Carole (Cécile de France), est une professeure d'espagnol. Delphine est aussitôt attirée par Carole et commence à fréquenter régulièrement les réunions du groupe. Elle découvre ainsi les luttes sociales pour les droits des femmes, le droit à l'avortement et à la contraception, et les discussions sur le degré de radicalité à adopter (faut-il ou non admettre les hommes, ce qui risque de brider la parole des femmes, ou tenir des réunions non mixtes), les types d'action à adopter et les discussions au sujet du bien-fondé ou non de la convergence des luttes avec d'autres revendications.

The film tells the story of Sissy Hankshaw, a woman born with a mutation (she would not call it a defect) giving her enormously large thumbs. The film is a transgressive romp, covering topics from homosexuality and free love to drug use and political rebellion to animal rights and body odor and religions. Sissy makes the most of her thumbs by becoming a hitchhiker. Her travels take her to New York, where she becomes a model for a transvestite feminine hygiene products mogul, known as The Countess, who introduces her to the man whom she will marry, an asthmatic, staid Mohawk named Julian Gitche. In her later travels, she encounters, among many others, a sexually open cowgirl named Bonanza Jellybean and an itinerant escapee from the Japanese internment camps happily mislabeled "The Chink".

Evelyn Couch (Bates), a timid, unhappy housewife in her forties, meets elderly Virginia Threadgoode, known as Ninny (Tandy) in an Anderson, Alabama nursing home. Ninny, over several encounters with Evelyn, tells her the story of the now-abandoned town of Whistle Stop, and the people who lived there. The film's subplot concerns Evelyn's dissatisfaction with her marriage and her life, her growing confidence, and her developing friendship with Ninny. The narrative switches several times between Ninny's story, which is set between World War I and World War II, and Evelyn's life in 1980s Birmingham.
