An acidic and scathing comedy about social relations, the power of art and that of money.
Michael and Ulrike do not know where to turn anymore: busy with their work and baffled by the precocious puberty of their son, they hire Jessica as a housekeeper, to relieve them a little. They believe they are saving their seemingly idyllic family life. Jessica quickly becomes essential to everyone.
But who exactly is this woman whose physical presence is asserting day by day? How to behave "right" with her? What does one offer to his cleaning lady for Christmas? Is it socially conceivable to form friendships with her?
One day, Ulrike's chief artist, Haulupa, notices the seductive Jessica and decides to hire her as a performer.
As often, the boundaries between admiration and humiliation are porous.
