Teenage girl Jana wants to be photographed as a femme fatale, in the hopes of seducing Tom – a man many years her senior. Her friend, Andy, agrees to help her out with his analog camera. Surrounded by the constricting solitude of life in the countryside, they arrange to meet in a room at the local inn. While Jana struggles with being fatale, Andy finds himself longing to be closer to her. Slowly, Jana begins to sense that what she’s been looking for all along might very well be nearer than she thought.
