She meets Gustave, a unsuccessful toy salesman, and potential con man. Together they begin a passionate affair, where they indulge in illicit sex and illegal scams. But parallel to their exhilarating affair, the police are on the hunt for a mysterious masked robber known only as Le Terroriste.
As the stakes rise, and betrayal means Emma finds herself alone, her own talents for deception develop into an overwhelming and obsessive desire for her to get her revenge.
