A sincere and poetical story on young womens sexuality
More than 100 young women turn up, when the two directors of the film look for participants for “an erotic film on womens terms”. During the following months the women tell about their sexual encounters and fantasies to the camera. As time goes by and the stories number, a conceptual frame begins to emerge, and the directors realizes that they are not just casting for the film, but actually in the middle of creating it.
