At the height of the 1920's Paris, Flora, a beautiful courtesan and a kept woman by a famous surgeon falls madly in love with Virgil, a cherubin florist, 20 years younger than her who wants to become a painter.
She locks him inside her house, in a secret boudoir to give him the opportunity to paint as he wishes. She gives him canvases and brushes, dresses him with the finest silk from China, everyday she spoils him with the most sugary pastries and washes him cerimoniously and sensually. He becomes at the same time her lover, her child, her double, her wife and her sexual toy.
But this paradise will eventually be destroyed...
