The film is a profile of a young woman and the men who fall for her. Sometimes loud and shrill, sometimes childlike, sometimes quiet, she oscillates between the extremes. And all the while, she is a stranger to herself, a mere guest in her own existence. She follows men home or to hotels, looks for their breaking point and uses their desires and longings against them. It is a perfidious game of control and loss of control. Between attraction and repulsion, the borders between victims and aggressors become blurred. An unbridled excursion along an emotional one-way street. Not until her own childishness is reflected in the eyes of a little girl do things get out of control, exposing a trauma.
