Camille, a young sex worker in her twenties, has arranged to meet at a cheap motel with her recurrent client, Samuel. Soon after, they are kicked out by an uptight and nosy manager, who has for a long time suspected of their endeavors. Samuel, not ready to say goodbye to Camille, suggests going to a diner. It is there where he will gain the confidence to expresses his wishes of making their relationship exclusive, implying that if she agrees he would take care of her economic situation. Camille, clearly uncomfortable by the offer, leaves the restaurant. She then receives a call from her proud mother, who is completely unaware of her day job, and an email from her bank with some bad news. Feeling extremely pressured by everyone around her, Camille is pushed into making a decision about her future.
