In the sprawling city of Paris, strangers, friends, and lovers wander for companionship. Confident of what they want, but not yet knowing what they need, they struggle to find just the right fit to fill their respective voids. Young Émilie, who’s in search of a new roommate and always up for a commitment-free romance, meets Camille, who soon fills both requests. As detached as she claims to be, however, Émilie finds herself falling for Camille, just as he’s pulling away. Enter Nora, whose bright disposition entices Camille immediately, setting off a friendship that Camille wishes will evolve to be more. And Amber, discovered in the most unlikely of places, seems to be the kindred spirit Nora didn’t know she was searching for. The steamy, sensual PARIS, 13TH DISTRICT reveals the intricacies of romantic relationships. We may pick up casual friendship here, intimacy there, and deep connection someplace else. Is true happiness possible until we find all three? —A.B.
