Christine (Kristin Scott Thomas) is a powerful executive who employs a naïve, young assistant, Isabelle (Ludivine Sagnier) to work under her. She finds it amusing to play on Isabelle's naivety then teach her a hard lesson in business ethnics.

However when one of Isabelle's ideas tempts Christine to pass if off as her own, she underestimates her protege's ambition and cunning, and the scene is set for all out war.

In his final film, director Alain Corneau (SERIE NOIRE, TOUS LES MATINS DU MONDE), pits the fiery talents of Ludivine Sagnier (A GIRL CUT IN TWO) and Oscar-nominee Kristin Scott Thomas (THE ENGLISH PATIENT) against each other when office politics turn, literally, cut-throat.
