Jeanne Francoeur, a clever and ambitious non-binary person from a long line of gendarmes, lives on a military base with an abrasive father, forced to care for their younger siblings while dreaming of breaking out of the family’s milieu by becoming a high-powered financial analyst. Jeanne also faces the return of an old love, who left for military service after their upsetting first sexual encounter. Eager to make their mark they takes advantage of an entry-level internship, biding their time and closely observing the slick and shark-like boss. When Jeanne spots a mistake in the code by one of the well-connected full-time analysts, the boss takes notice and offers to mentor Jeanne into the business. At an evening for initiates organized in her private mansion, they’ll met Elia, a corrupting patron with a hoarse voice, capable of emotionally shaking her guest like a captivating and poisonous apparition… Jeanne is played by famous French pop star Claire Pommet, aka Pomme, who makes here a very impressive acting debut in the second feature film by Héléna Klotz.
