Plot – Carol, a young Belgian manicurist, lives in London with her sister Hélène. Shy and androphobic, Carol feels uncomfortable with the constant presence of her sister's lover in their apartment. When Hélène and her partner leave for a short holiday and leave her alone, Carol's frail psyche breaks down completely. She gets more and more distracted on her workplace and finds every kind of excuse to justify her long non-attendances, while at home she is constantly haunted by hallucinations. Completely dissociated, Carol will end up killing Colin, a boy that was courting her and had entered her apartment, and the landlord, who had tried to rape her.
