Daniel Muller is a middle-aged man who feels attracted to Marek, a young gigolo that spends his days with a group of eastern-european immigrants at Gare du nord, in Paris. Daniel decides to pick-up Marek for a in-call in his house, but Marek doesn't show up alone on his client's house. A chilling game of seduction and intimidation ensues. Marek returns, after all, to Daniel's house, and their encounters become constant and more intimate. A relationship grows between the two men, but the destructive character of Marek's world won't lie sleeping for much long.
