She is helpless to stop them...
Adele has a seemingly enviable life.
She is a respected journalist, living in a flawless Paris apartment with her surgeon husband and their young son.
But beneath the veneer of 'having it all', Adele is bored. She begins to orchestrate her life around one-night stands and extramarital affairs, arriving late to work and lying to her husband about where she's been, until her compulsions threaten to consume her altogether.
