Synopsis Pierre is a 17-year-old living a small, orderly and pious life with his grandmother. Disaster lurks in the Canary Islands, in his parents’ house, a couple who are tearing each other apart and indulging in debauchery. Pierre moves in with them, with Hélène, his fascinating mother, a femme fatale, and with his loathsome father, whom they’ll soon bury. Hélène drags her son to pleasure, she hands Réa, a former lesbian whim, over to him. With her, Pierre discovers ecstasy, shame and respect. Hélène’s morality, ultimately lax, doesn’t consider lusting after her own son a taboo, she wouldn’t call it incest.
