A person is often isolated and adrift beneath a mask of stability and security, and even beauty. Isabelle is one among them. Tied to relatives and friends that, while capable and friendly, offer little in the way of excitement, she longs to feel alive somehow. For thrills she turns to selling her body on the internet. "Easy money is a downward spiral" she is told. "Blah, blah, blah" is her response, and she seems committed enough to continue in this underworld. This insightful, honest and nonjudgmental film does not take you in directions you expect it to go in. It leaves questions open and raw. It dares, thankfully, to take you to places that mainstream films do not, and it does so in compelling ways. Seen at the 2014 Miami International Film Festival.
