Set in the world of theater, this psychological drama revolves around a novice actress named Fine who, despite the general consensus that she lacks talent, is cast by renowned director Kaspar Friedmann for the main role of his student staging of “Camille.” The sometimes cruel theater environment forces her to descend into the dark recesses of her very core where she is to find the requisite intensity to perform. As she takes on a new identity to accomplish the task, Fine becomes a participant in a dangerous game.
