Synopsis

At first glance, Leyla and Tristan seem like the perfect young couple. They’re traveling together to a remote island, to where Leyla’s childhood friend Stella has invited them. However, it soon becomes clear that something mysterious is going on. Numerous couples have arrived during the final days of summer, to see the world through the eyes of someone else – some are using it to find themselves, while others are seeking escape.

Leyla and Tristan meet Fabienne und Mo over a festive dinner. They perform the ritual of exchange and experience the change in their perceptions, not to mention their behavior, their desires and their relationships. Leyla, in particular, has never been happier, she feels a sense of release and fulfilment, with a completely new outlook on life. But when she refuses to return to her old self, the situation threatens to spiral out of control.
