Synopsis:
In the twilight of her twenties, Mona tries relentlessly to get her break as an actress. She is waiting for her “time” to come. A small role that left its mark notwithstanding, elation is quickly replaced by disappointments. Time goes by and roles are not forthcoming. She runs out of money and is forced to move in with her younger sister, Sam.
For her part Sam is beyond her first big success and is beginning to join the ranks of actresses to be reckoned with in French cinema. She shares her life with Manuel and their son. In spite of the differences in their character (Mona is serious and thoughtful, Sam more instinctive and whimsical) they have tender and sincere affection for each other. Sam can no longer stand this life that Mona covets so much. For her it verges on the neurotic and she will withdraw. In so doing, she leaves room for Mona to live for herself and by her own efforts, and to redefine her life and priorities, regardless of the price.
