Milan, 2012. Photographer Valentina Rosseli is happily living with her partner of one year, Phillip Rembrant, but she can't help feeling the passion in their relationship has waned.

When she is offered an intriguing photography assignment, to take pictures of those engaged in the darker side of desire, she gets drawn into a shadowy world that reveals a part of her sexuality she has not yet explored....

Venice, 1924. Belle is on a quest. Unfulfilled by her husband and caged by the constraints of society, she strives to liberate herself by using her body in a secret life as a courtesan. She longs to meet the man who can not only fulfil her sexually, but also love her.

Belle and Valentina are living parallel lives, but what connects them? Theirs is a story that taps into the secret desires of all modern women, and explores the relationship between sex and true love.
