The film is a heady mix of mystery, mirrors and motion. The camera focuses on a solitary waiter as he observes Julianne Moore and Chloë Sevigny dart between mirrored doors, as they both search for their friend Charlotte. Illuminated by a rich indigo light, each cast member suddenly appears next to the waiter asking for Charlotte, concluding with the waiter offering French water.

With music performed by Noveller and The Brian Jonestown Massacre, the waiter’s hypnotic state is heightened by each actor vanishing and reappearing, creating a vertigo-like sensation for the viewer that leaves an impression.
