Artistic and authentic, this soulful relationship drama revolves around two artists, Axèle (Jenna Thiam) and Camille (Clotilde Hesme), one is a photographer, the other a writer. Both are selected for a scholarship to spend a year at the Villa Medici in Rome. Their first encounter is fleeting but unforgettable.
Who is Axèle, really? Is she a mysterious artist, who lives in literal symbiosis with her own work, or could she be, perhaps, the ghost of the Villa Medici itself, a spiritual and artistic guide to Camille? By the end of their time in Rome, nothing will be the same as it was: bodies and minds are set free, but at what cost?
