In the vein of the master Alfred Hitchcock, veteran French director Jacques Otmezguine blends humor and tension to create a thriller that is both fast-paced and sexy. Although his personal life is a disaster (his wife is divorcing him after 25 years), Francois is a successful business man who is under pressure to sell the secret X27 code that will make him extremely rich. While driving one night, he nearly hits the beautiful but troubled Florence- a woman fleeing her abusive husband. Gratitude quickly turns to lust, and Francois is soon captivated by the femme fatale. Little does Francois know that his life is headed for a collision course, and he must make the ultimate decision to discover something he has yet to find himself.
