Mother of two Anne (Binoche), a journalist for French Elle, leads a perfectly bourgeois life in Paris, juggling family, work and leisure. Her research for an article on student prostitution cracks this serenity, as she meets Alicja (Joanna Kulig), a Polish student whose persona is as troubling as it is seductive, and Charlotte (Anaïs Demoustier), a somewhat reserved French woman who seems to exercise her trade as part of a bitter social struggle. Little by little, the stories of the two young women emerge. Where Anne expected to find poverty and distress, she instead discovers a silent determination, and is forced to question her most intimate convictions about money, family and sex.
