Plaisir

Eleanore travels to a castle in the south of France for a WWOOF exchange. She naively speaks no French and struggles to connect with her new community of eclectic French artists. She is quickly taken under the wing of Sophie, whose confidence and charisma are what Eleanore longs for. When her growing romantic feelings aren't reciprocated, Eleanore must face the ultimate purpose of her trip and come to terms with the idea that wherever you go- there you are. Based on true events.
