Christmas Eve is ruined by an act of terrorism. As the city of Clermont-Ferrand descend into panic, thirty something Mederic falls in love with older prostitute Isadora.

Set amid the tense aftermath of a radical terrorist attack in the placid central French city of Clermont-Ferrand, Alain Guiraudie’s film wryly comments on a middle-class society that oscillates between liberal altruism and wary prejudice. This backdrop is combined by a separate narrative detailing the same protagonist’s troubled romance with a married local sex worker – both bedroom farce and vital political satire.
