Originally written by the director in 2013 as her final project for her studies at La Fémis film school, the script focuses on the character of Paula. Joachim, an artist with whom she has shared the last ten years of her life, has just left her, and she finds herself on the streets of this new part of Paris she had followed him to. But Paula is not a melancholic woman, and so she chooses to stay, to be swallowed up by this unknown city, which is so attractive and so abusive at the same time. She is so close to her obsession, her goal, Joachim, but is invisible to him. But her solitude, odd jobs, fleeting encounters and her own bedroom flip everything she knows for certain on its head.
