Jeanne and Natacha meet at a party. Natacha invites Jeanne to stay a few days at her place as Jeanne's apartment is occupied for the moment. Natacha would like Jeanne to become her divorced father's new girlfriend because she can't stand the actual one.

Jeanne, whose boyfriend is away, doesn't see any harm in the 18 years old girl's fantasies but Igor, Natacha's father, seems to be attracted by her. Soon, the tension grows between the members of this quatuor and Jeanne doesn't know to say no at the right moments.
