Michèle is the boss of a major gaming company and manages obstinate employees, her son and his crazy fiancée, her ex-husband, and even her mother with her new gigolo with icy grace. When she's brutally attacked by a masked assailant in her own home, a darkly exciting peculiar game begins in reality as well. Isabelle Huppert's performance in the leading role has already earned her numerous critics' awards, including a Golden Globe and her first Oscar nomination.
