Synopsis

Michele, a twenty-year-old model is depressed after breaking up with her boyfriend Bertrand. She fears her life is in a rut. Work is steady, and all her friends are loyal and supportive, but something seems to be missing. So she decides to give Buddhism a try; it feels fine, but still is incapable of stemming the rage she feels against her mother and mother's boyfriend. Soon after, she meets handsome Jewish veterinarian Francois, 12 years her senior. Impressed by his devotion, she decides to convert to Judaism, hoping to find faith in something. But Michele's attempts to become Jewish cause more confusion than she realizes.
