The little death is a documentary film about the female orgasm. Women from various age, experiences and sexual preferences talk about their orgasms in all sincerity. Poetical, abstract and metaphoric images take us in the heart of their sensations.
Speaking about orgasm, the protagonists talk about their desires, their sexuality. With sensibility, poetry and humor, the film take us in the intimacy of women. Far away from pornography or performance’s cult. The film is a collective adventure, driven by a common will to break some taboos that still weigh on female sexuality.

The little death is a dialog between women, for women. And for men.
