Clara and Nikolaï meet at a rave. They return to Nikolaï’s apartment and make love. Afterwards, instead of parting, the two lovers divulge their deepest secrets to one another. Nikolaï is a beautiful loser. At thirty one years old, he leads a simple and frugal life. He applies himself to reading the great classics of literature but never finishes a book he has begun. Unable to submit to any schedule, he finds himself unfit for work. He envisions big projects and has large ideas but, inevitably and despite himself, loses sight of them before they are realized. Clara, like Nikolaï, seems not to be made for this world. She leads a double life. By day, she works as a grade three school teacher; by night, she is a compulsive party-girl. She goes out every night, gets drunk and high and sleeps with men, women or both at once.
