Ronah is a sex worker and behavioral psychology student with a special assignment. As a surrogate partner, she sleeps with patients who have trouble allowing intimacy. Psychotherapist Dr. Alan Cassidy refers clients to Ronah, who work with her to learn accept physical intimacy in a controlled setting. Her newest client, red-haired anesthesiologist Johnny, presents a special challenge for her. For every step Ronah helps him forward in therapeutic work, he takes two steps back. "Abandoning all voyeurism, Anja Marquardt's impressively complex, stylistically mature directorial debut describes how the boundary between professional and private intimacy visibly softens."
