BellevilleZack and Abby are American newlyweds who have settled into an idyllic life in Belleville, a Bohemian neighborhood of Paris. But when Abby finds Zack home from work unexpectedly, their picture perfect marriage begins to show cracks. Almost unnoticeably, the small secrets and larger lies create a distance between them that grows ever wider, until . . .

A mood of menace comes to hover in the air. Their mutual love is frayed by disappointments and the possibility of violence of one kind or another is perhaps just a whisper away.
