Murphy is an American cinema school student, staying in Paris. He had a French partner, called Electra, whom he dated for 2 years. Eventually, they met as well as had a no-strings-attached threesome with another woman, a young blonde Danish teenager named Omi, as a way to add some excitement to their lovemaking. Yet later, he made love with her behind Electra's back, as a result of which Omi became pregnant. This unintended pregnancy ended the relationship between Murphy and Electra on a dreadful note, as well as it forced Murphy to marry Omi. In one early morning, Electra's mom, Nora, phones him to ask if he's spoken with Electra, because she hasn't learnt through her for 3 months, and offered her little girl's self-destructive tendencies. For the remainder of this day, he recalls his previous 2 years with Electra in a collection of fragmented, nonlinear flashbacks; exactly how they first satisfied in Paris, their fast hookup, as well as their lives over the next 2 years which is loaded with substance abuse, harsh sex and also tender moments.
