Plot: Siegrid Alnoy's dark allegorical thriller tells the tale of an outsider who must confront her own personal demons after tragedy strikes. Christine (Sasha Andres) is a young secretary who works as a temp at various offices in her small French town. Consistently ignored by everyone around her, Christine desperately craves a connection of some sort. She finds it in Patricia (Catherine Mouchet), her recruiter at the temp agency. The two begin to spend time together, but when the relationship appears to be evolving into something truly genuine, Christine snaps and brutally murders Patricia. Miraculously, it is after this incident that the pieces begin to fall into place for Patricia. She gets a full-time job and moves into an apartment with her new boyfriend. But the guilt never goes away, and when a young coworker (Pierre-Felix Graviere) and a police inspector (Carlo Brandt) start asking questions, Christine commits a truly redemptive act.
