Alice just had her entire life turned upside-down. Her husband Francois has been bleeding them dry, secretly withdrawing cash on a biweekly basis and having stopped payments on their mortgage over a year ago. Alice now has nothing, her entire inheritance having gone into the Paris apartment she shared with her husband and their young son. An apartment the bank will foreclose on in just a few weeks. It's not like Francois will help, as he's nowhere to be found and isn't answering his phone. But when she discovers where all the money was going — a local high-end escort service — Alice decides to go into the profession that so enraptured her husband.

Introduced by Emilie Piponnier and Martin Swabey
