Maud is a strong willed filmmaker who suffers a stroke. Bedridden but determined to pursue her latest film project, she meets Vilko, a con man who sindles celebrities, and soon finds herself falling for his manipulative charm as their parasitic relationship hurdles out of control.
Bravely unadorned, this is a unique collaboration between provocative auteur Catherine Breillant and the great actor Isabelle Huppert. In it, a director exposes the story of her own infirmity and a later, grave mistake, in a hard-boiled film that teems with psychosexual mystery.
