FULL SYNOPSIS

American filmmaker Lodge Kerrigan (Lodge Kerrigan) directed this French production, set in New York. Dublin native Claire (Katrin Cartlidge of Katrin Cartlidge and Katrin Cartlidge) is a New York prostitute constantly working to eliminate her debt to menacing Roland Cain (Colm Meaney), who's known her since she was a child. After the death of her mother, Claire sets out to unleash her pent-up feelings and gain control of her life.

Atonal score by Ahrin Mishan and Simon Fisher. Shown in competition at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
