Nag is a prostitute dressed up as a geisha who has to choose between two men: Simon, a 50-year-old police officer and Hervé, a 25-year-old nurse. Aged 40, Nag is at a turning point in her life. She herself no longer believes in the image of a sex bomb that she built for herself. A violent, despairing declaration of love from Simon… another, more passionate one from Hervé (who could be her son), and her mother's brutal death combine to destabilize her. They lead her to confront a reality that frightens her: her future.The film tells of the path she has to follow in order to drop her geisha mask and accept a risk that she feels is greater: being loved. Through the portrait of Nag, the world itself is examined. It is a world that is generous, poetic, sometimes violent and most often funny…Uncompromising in its portrayal, this world is both real and reinvented.
