About the film:

World Premiere, 2022 Cannes ACID program

Freedom and sexual attraction collide, sparking an intense, erotic love story. Bigna, a twenty-eight-year-old scientist, is used to having everything under control, even her erotic desires always follow rules. Thirty-three year-old Frank searches for meaning in a haze of drugs, feeding on other people’s affection. Their different worlds collide, and they become obsessively entwined in a passionate affair.
