Film details


Set in Geneva. A young woman named Rosemonde had six years previously killed a man who tried to rape her. She has sold her story to a new television channel in the country. They want to make a series of programmes based on real life experiences. Rosemonde has received an advance but is reluctant to keep her part of the deal. Marie, a young actress posing as the one who is to play Rosemonde is persuaded to try and draw the true story out of Rosemonde by spending time with her.
