On her latest assignment, a journalist (Julliette Binoche) for Elle immerses herself in a prostitution ring run by university students.
Anne (Binoche), a well-off Paris-based mother of two and investigative journalist for ELLE, is writing an article about student prostitution. Her meetings with two fiercely independent young women, Alicja (Joanna Kulig) and Charlotte (Anais Demoustier), are profound and unsettling, moving her to question her most intimate convictions about money, family and sex.
Alicja and Charlotte, who ply their trade discretely, live ordinary lives while handling a small roster of regular clients. Despite Anne's initial expectations, she finds that these girls aren't all that different from herself, motivated women who are surprisingly well-adjusted and comfortable with their jobs. Another bravura performance from Juliette Binoche in a provocative sexually explicit glimpse at the seamier side of student life. (subtitles)
