The vacation of a famous rock star and a filmmaker is disrupted by the unexpected visit of an old friend and his daughter.

Marianne is a glittering rock star on a hiatus with her filmmaker lover Paul. Recovering from an operation on her throat, she has retreated from both the public gaze and her performance persona (an androgynous cross between Mick Jagger and David Bowie). Poolside, stripped naked in the scorching Italian sun and seemingly at ease, the lovers are completely unprepared for the sudden arrival of cocky music producer Harry and his recently discovered daughter, the petulant and sexy Penelope.
