Having witnessed a murder which people are attempting to pin on her, infiltrating the police is the only shot she has to cast light on the affair that destroyed both her life and her family. Louise must become Detective “Antoine Kerlac”.
As she joins the squad, she is confronted with a series of murders of young models who posed for the Montparnasse artists.

Louise is a woman who dresses up as a man to save her life, but also to be able to live freely. A woman who loves the thrill of her job, the independence that ensues, all the while aware that it will lead her to difficult, life defining choices.
By wearing masks Louise will find the path to her true self.
