The film consists of 13 scenes, most of which are filmed in 360-degree panoramas of middle-class spaces occupied by the main character, Louise. Louise deals with a change in her lifestyle, learning to negotiate domestic life and motherhood. These scenes are occasionally interrupted by sequences of Mulvey telling, directly to the camera, the myth of Oedipus finding the Sphinx.
