“The ‘erotic thriller' is a genre now long since bastardized by Hollywood. But here is the real article…” - Toronto Film FestivalEve and Damien are passionately in love. Together, they run an unusual café called The Zoo where they host an annual contest for the best animal noise. After an accident, a gulf of silence slowly comes between them. Eve communicates in gestures and no longer speaks aloud. Damien can't express his desires anymore. When their relationship is on the verge of suffocation, Eve takes drastic action. Desperate to hang onto Damien, Eve makes him her prisoner, caged - like her - against his will. From here unfolds a story in which suspense (and desire) are driven by physical compulsions and sexual predation. A bold statement on the nature of love.
