Mathieu Amalric reprises the role of Paul Dédalus from My Sex Life…Or How I Got into an Argument. Paul prepares to leave Tajikistan and reflects on his life. He has a series of flashbacks that unfold in three episodes. The first includes his childhood in Roubaix, France. He next recalls a student trip to the USSR, where a clandestine mission led him to offer his identity to a young Russian. Finally, he remembers University life and returning home to party with his sister and shifting circle of friends. Most of all, he remembers Esther, the love of his life.
