Written by the filmmaker, for which this will be the fourth feature, with the collaboration of Christophe Chevalier, the screenplay follows Anna who leads a peaceful family life on the Atlantic coast until she meets Peter, an English photographer who has come over to scout out locations for a film. By lighting up her almost-too-smooth daily life, Peter will reveal what it lacks and become a threat to her relationship. Incapable of resisting her impulses, Anna lets herself be caught up in a deliciously toxic pas de deux, while in the village rumours swell to devastating effect...

Produced by Alain Benguigui and Thomas Verhaeghe for Sombrero FilmsHeart and Soul is to be co-produced by the Germans from X Filme and is to benefit from €260,000 in support through the Franco-German mini-treaty. Shooting is set to start in 2013. 

The other projects selected are Christophe GansBeauty and the Beast (Eskwad - Achtzehnte Babelsberg Film), Hiner Saleem's Aga(Agat Films and HS Productions - Rohfilm Leipzig and Berlin), Xavier Gens' Au Coeur de l'enfer (parity co-production between Bavaria Film and the TF 1 Droits Audivisuels - Les Chauves Souris association), as well as Fréderic Planchon's Schrödinger's Cat Is Dead (Elaine Antoinette - Barry Films).
