After scandalizing France with 2002's Secret Things, controversial director Jean-Claude Brisseau returns with this semi-autobiographical story of a director whose curiosity leads to unexpected consequences. Francois is holding auditions for his upcoming film about female sexuality. He expects the process to be unconventional but could never predict the dangers... As his female cast embarks on a journey of intense physical pleasure-seeking they become emotionally involved with the director and with each other.
