Description:
  The film opens with a dramatic scene which results from the crossing of several destinies. First of all, there is Sarah. She is a prostitute, not by obligation, not by choice, but because it is an easy way to earn money quickly. Then there is Zacharie, Sarah’s ex-boyfriend, who remains like a shadow in her life. He stays at her place and lives a life of bad deals while squeezing money out of her. He feels reduced to the state of an affective parasite, and what remains of his love for her often turns into aggressive frustration.

Then, there are these two women that Sarah will meet by accident: a childhood friend, Axelle, coming back from nowhere and who is now a photographer who doesn’t dare to show her work; and a young pregnant woman, Elena abandoned by her husband without any reasonable explanation. All through the film, Sarah questions with lucidity what happens to her: all the little events, the little choices and the meetings that will provoke the inescapable drama. Very quickly, the three women will share a very intense friendship, but the world around them will catch up with them. While entering each other’s lives, all of them will bring about changes and turn their existences upside down.

But these changes will launch a pitiless process: while following the advice of her two friends and trying to get rid of Zacharie, Sarah will be caught up in a spiral of violence that will lead her to her own destruction. Her friends too will have to pay a high price. Together for the best, they will reach the worse case scenario.
