In this gripping, heartbreaking tale – one with the modern zest of Bunuel’s Belle de Jour – a Montreal housewife seeks to fill her emptiness through anonymous encounters in Internet chat rooms and in airport hotel bars and bedrooms, and these adventures ultimately lead her to a terrifying sexual saga in a New York brownstone.
