An uptight and conservative woman, working on tenure as a literacy professor at a large urban university, finds herself strangely attracted to a free-spirited, liberal woman who works at a local carnival that comes to town.
The intelligent Annabelle starts in an elite Catholic girls' boarding high school after being expelled from the previous 2 schools. She's open about being lesbian. She's attracted to her teacher, Simone.
Camille and Martin are in love and teachers at a christian college; they get the opportunity to get a better job, but they would have to marry for that.

Since accidentally buying this film a week ago, I've been watching it almost everyday. It is a very moving piece, incredibly romantic and beautifully shot. I have no expertise on movie direction but all credit goes to Patricia for her creativity. Apart from being incredibly gorgeous, the leading ladies gave a very moving performance, which intern moved me.
