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)
