Synopsis Sylvie is a transsexual and she makes her living as a prostitute. Two or three moments of happiness, the rest is pure darkness and restlessness, utter sadness. She loves two men; one is Jamal, a North-African who sells his favours to both men and women in the toilets of a bus station, a 30-year-old man-child who sighs over the family that disowned him. And she also loves Mikhail, a Russian immigrant with a residence permit, shattered by the Chechnyan war, a deserter. They live together, they sleep together, they travel together to the village and the house where Sylvie was born, where her memories are, where her mother is dying.
