A beautiful French ingenue plays a game of seduction with a man in a lavish Parisian apartment and is inevitably subdued by his chauvinist charms. Suddenly off screen the director yells 'cut!' and the scene is revealed to be on a professional film set, and as Katherine, the young actress, travels through her behind the scenes world, layers of the naive character she portrayed are elegantly - and literally -stripped away as she interacts with a diverse array of cast and crew. As she confidently steps in front of a second camera for a photo shoot, she is revealed to be a wholly transformed woman: thoroughly modern and in control, yet still undeniably sexy.
