Christine and Isabelle work at the same company. Christine makes the most of her colleague’s weakness and shamelessly steals her ideas. Things change when Isabelle proves that she’s not the little lamb she appeared to be and seduces one of Christine’s lovers. The war between the two of them is unleashed. Passion, based on a film by Alain Corneau, can only end up in De Palma territory: sophisticated violence, sensuality and the game of points of view.
