SYNOPSISCo-written by Szumowska and Tine Byrckel, formerly called "Sponsoring", this is about Anne (Juliette Binoche), journalist for ELLE in Paris, is researching an article about female student prostitu- tion. Although these young women are naturally not keen on pub- licity, she persuades two students into talking to her: the provocative Alicja (Joanna Kulig), an ambitious economics student who left Poland to further her education; and the subtle Charlotte (Anaïs Demoustier), enroled in a Parisian business school, determined to leave her modest French countryside background behind. Where Anne is expecting misery and distress, she discovers freedom, pride, and empowerment. As Anne’s professional curiosity in the two liberated women becomes personal, she starts to question her own sexuality.
