Coming out of an unhappy relationship and a stint at an artist colony, Charlotte, a writer, takes a job teaching at a private ESL college. There she befriends Renata - audacious, sexy, and as changeable as Proteus. "I have a story for you," Renata says to her one day over lunch. She doesn't elaborate further, but Charlotte soon discovers that she has found in Renata an unexpectedly passionate and compelling subject.
