American writer Tom Ricks (Ethan Hawke) arrives in Paris desperate to put his life together again and win back the love of his estranged wife and daughter. When things don't go the way he had anticipated, he moves into a shady hotel in the suburbs, and works as a night guard to make ends meet.
When he meets Margit (Kristin Scott Thomas), a beautiful, mysterious stranger, everything in his life starts looking up. Their passionate and intense relationship triggers a string of inexplicable events... as if an obscure power was taking control of his life.
