Film Description:
"Taking on her lover's fantasies, a woman adorns herself in her finest feathers and assumes a seductive but demeaning role. Caught up in his own game, the man plays on to the bitter end—a cruel game in which love is stripped of its golden glow, leaving only the naked reality of dependency and desperation. Film without words."
-- National Film Board of Canada (source)
