The first feature from the director of ORLANDO, THE TANGO LESSONS and THE MAN WHO CRIED is a key film of early Eighties feminist cinema, embracing a radical, experimental structure and made with an all-woman crew.

Colette (Colette Laffont), a black French woman working in the City as a computer operator at a bank, begins to investigate the significance of the figures she copies, despite discouragement from her male bosses, and discovers gold to be the secret key to the circulation of money.
