Two old spinsters live together in a Nordic fishing village, dedicated to each other and above all to God. Their commitment to the Church — trained in them by an austere upbringing — has forced them to abandon their youthful ambitions. Unexpectedly, a French refugee, Babette, arrives on their doorstep. The sisters take her in, and in sincere gratitude, Babette serves as their maid and housekeeper.
