The plot is centered around the exclusive acting school run by Constance Dumas (Bulle Ogier), and the assorted group of students under her tutelage, especially Anna (Fejria Deliba), Claude (Laurence Cote), Joyce (Bernadette Giraud) and Lucia (Ines d'Almeida). The four girls share a house, with Anna being the most recent flat mate after Cecile (Nathalie Richard) moves out. The crux of the film focuses on a mysterious stranger (Benoit Regent) who is seeking information about Cecile, and begins a series of individual encounters with Anna, Claude, Joyce and Lucia in order to retrieve something left behind in the house. The trouble is, he gives each girl a different story, a different name, and a different item he is allegedly searching for, and that layers the film with a small level of mystery as Rivette simultaneously leads the viewer through the almost mundane aspects of the character's lives, even as he interjects a subplot regarding a mysterious ghost that is never fully developed.
