“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. Her boyfriend and ex-lover take matters into their own hands and subsequently seek revenge upon the assailant. A simultaneously beautiful and terrible examination of the destructive nature of cause and effect, and how time destroys everything.” (Genesis)
