Chloé (Vacth) is a beautiful doe eyed young woman, disillusioned with the modelling world in which she once earned her living. When she starts suffering from stomach pains – which she is told are psychosomatic – she visits a shrink, the handsome bespectacled Paul Meyer (Renier). The instant spark between the pair is undeniable; they fall in love and move in together but she soon discovers that her lover is concealing a part of his identity.
