Injured in a car accident as a child, Alexia, played by Agathe Rousselle, has a titanium plate fitted into her head, and develops an extreme fetish for cars. Her subsequent encounters with men, women and vehicles reveal her loneliness and search for belonging. This body horror film is, according to the director, an attempt to talk about love without words.

“The miracle of Julia Doucournau's luridly beautiful Palme d'Or-winner is that the memory of the violence puncturing the film's first half recedes as loving tenderness takes hold.”
