Once a bubbly and extroverted singer, Jessie now spends her day in anguished solitude, desperately seeking to avoid her friends, family and – most of all – her own paranoia. Fuelled by insecurity and a morbid fear of confrontation, her fervid imagination finally leads her to make an unexpected reconnection with life.
The film premiered during Cannes Critics’ Week in 2004 and went on to win the Audience Awards at Angers the following year.
