Acclaimed actress Isabelle Huppert stars in this downbeat tale of a suicidal mental patient trapped in an endless maze of despair following the death of her only child. Initially raised in an acrid household, later locked into a dicey marriage, and ultimately saddled with a daughter she never wanted, Danielle attempts to take her own life multiple times before doctors are left with no other choice than to lock her away for the sake of her own safety. Not even sympathetic psychiatrist Dr. Neilson (Greta Scacchi) seems able to break through to the stoic patient whose hollow gaze that hints that any hope for salvation has long been lost. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

It could not destroy her indomitable spirit. Though she had never before considered dancing nude, Jordan turned to stripping, determined to earn enough money to someday get her life back on track. But the more she dances the more she gets caught up in the lifestyle, the late nights and the lure of easy money. Now the question is, when you lose everything, will your life ever be the same again?
