This movie is from our archive and is not currently screening.
Anna (Jacqueline McKenzie) is in her early 30s - she has a burgeoning music career as a singer, and has a loving relationship with her painter boyfriend, David (Aaron Blabey). Her remarkable voice and luminous presence command attention, and when Anna's choir holds a concert to raise money for a tour of China, she is noticed by Edward (Chris Haywood), a wealthy, cultured man in his 60s.
Accepting an offer to meet with Edward, in the hope that he will help finance the tour, Anna visits his imposing mansion. The dense artistic and erotic environment, so different from her own world, intrigues her. When Edward asks Anna to pose for a series of nude photographs, she sees no reason to refuse him. However, when David sees the results of the photographic shoot, he becomes jealous and unnerved by Edward's attention to Anna. The older man has captured an unseen side of Anna, a languid sensuality, and has started her on an intimate journey of self-discovery that can't be halted.
