A fatal attraction perhaps? The first kiss, a forced kiss from another man in the washroom near the railway station of Paris starts the ball rolling for Henri. That encounter triggers an obsession with the man, Jean. A man who seems to be an enigma, and not exactly someone that would be a role model for youths who are on the brink of their adulthood.

Add into this equation, a benefactor, someone who tries to help but knows only too well that obsessions can change a person, for better or worse. In this case, worse seems to win the day. There are twists and turns along the way, but ultimately that obsession seems all too powerful and overwhelming
