Beneath the smiles and couture, there is a darker side to modelling…

Aspiring model Emma has all her dreams ahead of her as she heads to Paris from suburban Denmark to start a career in fashion. With a new older photographer boyfriend, Emma is relishing the cosmopolitan life she now leads. Yet things are less glossy below the surface, and as the film reaches its final third, rapidly it becomes clear things are out of Emma’s control as her actions head towards a dramatic finale. Director Mads Matthiesen’s second feature twists the traditional story of the modelling world, portraying a deft exploration of the exploitation of teenage girls for fashion.
