Plot Summary
Shortly after Elle Wieck (Isabelle Adjani) moves to a small French village, she begins dating Pin-Pon (Alain Souchon), a quiet young mechanic who has grown obsessed with the beautiful newcomer. But Elle has her own reason for the relationship: Pin-Pon's deceased father was one of the men who brutally gang-raped her mother (Maria Machado) two decades before, and she's out to get her own form of revenge. However, Pin-Pon's deaf aunt (Suzanne Flon) suspects Elle's true motivation.
