Eva Green gives a terrific performance as Miss G, a glamorous and unconventional teacher idolised by her pupils. A new girl arrives at the islands private school, in the shape of a Fiamma, a Spanish girl of aristocracy. This leads to trouble on two fronts, the other girls start to dislike her because she is getting all the attention from Miss G, and Miss G starts to become obsessed by her. These unhealthy feelings lead to tragic consequences.
