Laura is a bright and ambitious language student at a top university in France. She is also broke. Surfing the internet one evening, she stumbles across an adult website that might just hold the answer to her financial problems - pages of personal ads offering money in exchange for 'female company'. On impulse she responds to one of them . . . and then another and another. When a man called Joe contacts her, prepared to pay ?150 for an hour-long meeting, she nervously agrees to his request.
Joe will be the first of many clients - men of all ages with urgent needs. And Laura will surprise even herself as she submits to their often bizarre demands in hotel rooms and apartments. But the pressures of leading a double life as student and call girl, and the increasing possessiveness of Joe soon begin to take their toll.
In her first year at university, 19-year-old Laura is set to learn more about men, money, sex and herself than she could ever have imagined.
