Description Coralie, a self-styled 'high-flying bird', refuses to be tied down to convention, or to the affections of any one of the men in her life. However, her stay in an ex-lover's beach house, plus a series of visitors, make for radical changes and a possible solution to Coralie's place in the world. Wryly questions the advantages of moral freedom.
