Noah, an insurance adjuster specialising in house fires, takes his clients' well-being so seriously he frequently sleeps with them to provide comfort. His wife, Hera, is a film censor who finds excitement in copying explicit scenes from the movies she is assigned to review. When their lives intersect with a rich couple obsessed with staging elaborate sexual fantasies, their secretive lives of artifice and ardour slowly begin to unfold. . .
Inspired by the real life fire that burnt down Egoyan's own family home, this hypnotic, dream-like tale of passionate yet dislocated characters has been compared to the films of David Lynch. It is quintessential Egoyan and sees the director at his very best.
