Axèle is a photographer, Camille is a writer. They don’t know each other but they’re both awarded a year’s residency at the Villa Medici in Rome. But who is Axèle really? A committed, uncompromising artist who identifies with her work? Or the ghost of the villa, guiding the unconscious of Camille and all the other artists in this mythical place? During this year in the Villa Medici bodies and minds are liberated, no one will remain intact.
