When 17-year-old Pierre (Louis Garrel) falls in love with his mother Hélène (Isabelle Huppert), he projects on to her emotions that she isn’t ready to handle. Refusing to be loved for something she isn’t, she decides to break all mystery and reveal her true nature, that of a woman for whom immorality has become an addiction. Pierre is going to ask her to initiate him and to go all the way in this more and more dangerous game...
