Keywords: Drama

An actress goes to extreme lengths to prove her worth in a director's upcoming stage production.

Thomas, Parisian auteur caught in the thick of auditions for his latest play, bemoans a lack of actresses fit for the lead role; namely, an ultimate dominatrix intent on making a willing man her sex slave. Enter Vanda, an aspiring performer and erotic dynamo; interested in pursuing the role to the point of obsession, Vanda plays to Thomas' personal and professional desires, blurring the lines between show and the real world as she breathlessly moves from one exhaustively rehearsed scene to the next over the course of her "extended" audition.
