The avid Syd is grateful for a job in an art magazine editor’s office though moving up in the ranks of arrogant curators is not easy. Finding that her neighbour is the famous photographer Lucy Beliner opens up possibilities. Lucy gave up on her carrer but few people know that she is lost in a drugged up relationship with a former actress. The worshipping interest of beautiful Syd (and the offer of an article), flatter Lucy as much as Syd is fascinated by her bohemian life. A film about ambition, power and the intertwining of art and life is one of the most successful lesbian films of the past 20 years.
