Lulu loves Henrik. She is the owner of an art gallery and he is one of her main clients. Henrik is married to Sophia but decides to invite Lulu to his house in the French Alps and, perhaps, start a new story together. However, Lulu´s anticipated holidays suddenly change when David, Henrik and Sophia´s son, arrives to the country house to prepare his final exams. Lulu and David´s relationship becomes closer while they both fight to get Henrik’s love and attention.

Lulu is a 46-minute-long story that reflects upon affective bonds through sexuality, love, gender issues and power relationships between three very different individuals.
