At a party where he is dumped by his employer of the night, he meets a masked man, a dominant man who says that now Devon has to only obey and serve him, Jean Michel. But after a tryst in a shadow corner he disappears and Devon takes the tube toward home, in a empy vagon all alone. And then Jean Michel reappears, domineering and persuasive, promising to Devon only pleasure from that moment on. But Jean Michel is a real man, a phantom or only a figment of Devon's imagination, a dream come true?
