Alice is an exemplary housewife. She lives together with her husband François and her little son in a flat in Paris. One day, while shopping, she discovers that her credit cards have been blocked, and learns about her husband’s secret life with prostitutes and luxury escorts. The situation worsens when François abandons them, leaving them bankrupt. To get out of this overwhelming financial situation, Alice decides to go to the escort agency that her husband used to go to in order to find a quick solution to their financial problems. Little by little Alice begins to thrive in this new business with a sense of freedom and empowerment that she had never felt before, but when François returns home he will not know what to do.
