A Taiwanese filmmaker makes a film based on the myth of Salomé. The story takes place at the Louvre. Even though he speaks neither French or English, he insists on giving the part of King Herod to the French actor Jean-Pierre Léaud. To give the film a chance at the box-office, the production company gives the part of Salomé to a world famous model. But as soon as film begins, the problems are arising. In all this confusion, the director suddenly learns of his mother’s death. The producer flies to Taipei, to attend the funeral. The director falls into a deep sleep where his mother’s spirit does not want to leave her old appartment. The producer has no choice but to wait, alone and lost in a strange city. As after a very long trip, the shooting will resume with all the caracters lost in the basement of the Louvre.
