    • Synopsis
    • American writer Tom Ricks arrives in Paris to rekindle a relationship with his daughter, Chloé, who recently moved there with her mother.
      But nothing goes according to plan: lodged in a seedy hotel, he is forced to work as a night guard, and his ex-wife won’t allow him to see his daughter.
      Tom is convinced he has hit rock bottom.
      Then he meets Margit. She’s sensual, and mysterious. But the rules she asks him to abide by are unusually strict: he is to ask no questions, and can only liaise with her twice a week...
      This odd relationship slowly slides into perilous territories...
