Thomas, a beleaguered playwright/director, is desperate to find an actress to play the female lead in his adaptation of the classic sadomasochistic tale Venus in Fur. Into his empty audition room walks a vulgar and equally desperate actress. Though utterly wrong for the sophisticated part, she exhibits a strange command of the material. Blurring the line between play and reality, the two enter into an increasingly serious game of submission and domination that only one of them can win. A funny, mysterious, and erotic journey for the whole audience.
