When they decide to move in together, everything seems perfect until a series of discoveries lead her to suspect that he may be living a double life. As she searches for the truth, Chloé’s investigations plunge her into a dark and bewildering world of smoke, mirrors and doppelgangers. The film was supported by Creative Europe's Automatic Distribution Funding scheme for its release in the Czech Republic and Poland.
