The plot unfolds in the office of playwright and director Thomas Novachek, who is conducting auditions to find the ideal actress to play Vanda in his adaptation of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's "Venus in Fur". Disheartened and anxious, fearing he won't find an actress good enough for the lead role, Thomas reluctantly agrees to see the tardy Vanda Jordan. This enigmatic actress, with her charismatic presence, draws Thomas into a dangerous game of power and sexual submission, raising questions about her true identity and motives for visiting the arrogant director.

"Venus in Fur" turns into a play within a play, and the audience is caught between what is "real" and what is "acted". Lines are blurred as actress and director become the characters of the play, creating a mesmerizing and thought-provoking experience.
