Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
A filmmaker seeks out actresses who aren't afraid to explore their sexuality for a film about female pleasure and transgressing taboos in director Jean-Claude Brisseau's semi-surreal fantasy drama. François (Frédéric Van Den Dreiessche) is a fiftysomething filmmaker who longs to achieve something truly great in the realm of cinema. In the aftermath of a spectral midnight visit from his beloved but deceased grandmother -- who offers the perplexed filmmaker a baffling warning from beyond the grave -- François sets out on his search for the most uninhibited actresses he can find. When an actress who is instructed to fake a climax experiences her very first orgasm during a private screen test and attributes the pleasurable anomaly to the presence of the director and his camera, François determines to create a film exploring the concept that forbidden fruit can actually enhance one's capacity for pleasure. Later, as trust issues begin to arise between François and stars Julie (Lise Bellynck), Charlotte (Maroussia Dubreuil), and Stéphanie (Marie Allan), two mysterious entities with the power to appear and disappear at will (Margaret Zenou and Raphaële Godin) prepare to carry out a series of clandestine orders that seem to bode ill for the ambitious director.
