Events over the course of one traumatic night in Paris unfold in reverse-chronological order as the beautiful Alex is brutally raped and beaten by a stranger in the underpass.

A simultaneously beautiful and terrible examination of the destructive nature of cause and effect, and how time destroys everything.
