An American studying in France crosses paths with two well-to-do Parisians amidst the May 1968 student riots.

Isabelle and Theo, fraternal twins and children of a French poet living out a privileged existence in their sprawling Paris estate, take American student and fellow film connoisseur Matthew in for a spell studying abroad. A debauched frenzy erupts with Isabelle and Theo's parents gone for the month, ignited by Matthew's marked sexual innocence and hampered only by the radical student riots of May 1968 practically taking place on their doorstep.
