That’s when he meets Jennifer, an attractive young hairdresser who becomes his lover. But while Clément’s life is ruled by the ideas of Kant and Proust, Jennifer spends her time reading popular novels and celebrity gossip magazines, and going to karaoke nights with her girlfriends. Their hearts and bodies are free to embark on a passionate love affair, but will it be strong enough to overcome the social and cultural barriers between them?
