Drama. Pierre is a young man who seemingly has it all: a wealthy life due to the success of his recently published novel, a caring, chic mother and an adoring fianceé. The idyll is marred by constantly troubling dreams and the fear of being followed by a long-haired woman. When Pierre finally manages to confront the mysterious stranger, she tells him her story - she is his sister. This meeting and exposure to his sister's lifestyle encourage Pierre to give up his wealthy life to travel to Paris with her, in order to write a novel with a "real" story.
