Lura is new in town. Fascinated by this new world that she discovers, the young woman is particularly attracted by Clara, a charismatic and full of life politician.
Due to a forced meeting provoked by Lura, Clara is welcoming despite the discomfort caused by the strange behavior of Lura and her stare a bit too captivating.
An embarrassment that intensifies in the evening when Lura invites herself to a party organized by Clara to celebrate, with her friends, her election as a member of Parliament. Throughout the evening, Lura is very naive and shows a disturbing ignorance about the things of the world, as if she came from a different universe. In particular, she discovers with distress that the government is pursuing a policy devastating the environment, especially the oceans.
It's few after that Clara learns the mysterious disappearance of her fiancé, Mike. A pain to which Lura is insensitive, believing that her presence is enough to fill the gap left by the missing.
Lura's obsession with capturing Clara's attention leads her to come into Clara’s home at night, sneaking into her bed and mimicking Mike's behavior. Half asleep, lost in the mesmerizing gaze of Lura, Clara is almost fooled but eventually pushes Lura violently when she realizes her mistake. Disillusioned, Lura leaves finally understanding that the one she admired was not better than the others.
After this altercation, with the help of a photo, Clara realizes that Lura's eyes are in all points the same as Mike’s. A strange song begins to echo in Clara's head. Mechanically, she goes to Lura’s who’s waiting for her lying in her bathtub, creepy. She's the one singing.
Despite herself, Clara enters the bathroom. She will never come out again.
The next day, while Lura applies Clara's lipstick, a message reminding of an upcoming meeting in the presence of the president is posted on Clara’s phone. Lura then smiles in the same way as Clara did, ready to assume her new role to the end.
