Hélène (Laetitia Dosch) is a successful woman who teaches Humanities at the Sorbonne. She is a strong, independent woman who has raised her son alone, but when she enters into an addictive, erotically-intoxicating relationship with a younger, married Russian diplomat named Aleksandre ( Sergei Polunin), she is caught in the grip of romantic obsession and the black hole desire creates. As her affair with the coldly cruel Aleksandre escalates, Hélène becomes further possessed by sexual desire and the escape it offers from the banality of her daily routine.
