Betty, a mysterious young woman, arrives in a small town in Quebec and befriends the lonely and naïve 14-year-old Léa.  But her overtures hide a dark purpose: Betty wants to leave the escort business and she has less than a week to find a replacement.  Using seduction and friendship, Betty sells Léa a dream and prepares the adolescent to take over her job.
