André, deserts on order to find his missing twin sister, Fernande. In Paris he continues his double quest: find Fernande… and become Fernande… both on stage as in the city. Little by little, the latter seems to supplant the former: André feels more and more like a woman. Furthermore, he is assigned by Nijinsky to dance in the place of his twin sister in the controversial show “The Faun”. At the heart of this troubling confusion of sexes, feelings and personalities, André finally manages to perform with Nijinski a sensual and violent duo of love and death.
