    Eden, a young PhD student in philosophy is introduced to nightlife by Paul, his professor. When the in-house DJ of a popular nightclub dies from an overdose, Eden takes over. Surrounded by music, drugs and sex, Eden observes but does not take part. However, he finds his place, and new politicized friendships in this alternative, queer environment. One night, he meets Nidhal, a Tunisian drag performer with whom he falls madly in love. Between Tunis, Barcelona and Paris, Eden lives his nights to the beat of Nidhal’s elusive aura.
    In the words of the poet, ”Love is to be reinvented”. That is the path followed by Camille’s films and the youth she portrays, a celebration of anything that goes beyond normality. Both a political statement and an alternative sentimental education, her project aims at breaking all sexual, social and ethnic boundaries.
