1966. Bulgaria is still behind the Iron Curtain. Julia Kristeva – a young and smart student – goes to Paris on a scholarship from the French government. There she finds herself among the cream of the French intelligentsia, where she meets the leader of the movement Tel Quel – Philippe Sollers. The two instantly fall in love and marry. She begins to work with Claude Lévi-Strauss, Jacques Derrida, Lucien Goldmann, Roland Barthes and Jacques Lacan. Iskra Angelova’s film tells the story of a successful and controversial figure – psychoanalyst, linguist, semiotician, philosopher and feminist.
