Rarely in cinema is a tale of passion so passionately told, and rarely is sexual intensity so intense.

Introverted schoolgirl Adèle dreams of her first love, but after a faltering fumble with a handsome male classmate her gaze is turned to mysterious, blue-haired Emma. The story of their love from total pleasure to absolute pain, is one that will touch every heart.
