Le film commence en 1922 dans la région de Londres, au Royaume-Uni. Vita Sackville-West est une écrivaine britannique à succès et une femme émancipée qui fume, conduit, signe ses livres de son vrai nom et vit une relation ouverte avec son mari, le diplomate Harold Nicolson, lui-même discrètement bisexuel. Vita vient de lire Mr Dalloway, le dernier livre de Virginia Woolf, écrivaine qu'elle admire et souhaite rencontrer. Mais Vita est issue de l'aristocratie conservatrice, et tant sa mère que son mari se montrent méfiants vis-à-vis de Woolf, qui passe pour folle et fait partie d'un groupe d'écrivains socialistes à la réputation de bohêmes, le Bloomsbury Group, dont les œuvres n'ont à ce moment qu'une diffusion confidentielle. Vita est bisexuelle et, dans sa jeunesse, elle a frisé le scandale en s'enfuyant avec une de ses amoureuses, Violet Keppel. Sa mère, qui a étouffé l'affaire, intervient pour empêcher la parution de son futur livre et lui défend de rencontrer le Bloomsbury Group. Vita finit par se rendre à l'une de leurs soirées et rencontre Virginia : c'est un coup de foudre, non réciproque. Déterminée à mieux connaître Virginia Woolf, Vita entame avec elle une correspondance vivace et soutenue, dont le film utilise de nombreux extraits. Elle s'intéresse à la maison d'édition fondée par Virginia Woolf et son mari Leonard Woolf, Hogarth Press. Vita va jusqu'à lui soumettre et lui dédicacer son prochain livre, Seducers in Ecuador, ainsi que les suivants, qui sont des succès et améliorent les finances de la maison. Elle lie connaissance avec la sœur de Virginia, Vanessa Bell, qui est peintre et dont le mari, Clive Bell, est également peintre.

Adèle is an introverted 15-year-old high-school student whose classmates gossip constantly about boys. While crossing the street one day, she passes by a woman with short blue hair and is instantly attracted. She dates a boy at her school for a short while and they have sex, but she is ultimately dissatisfied and breaks off their relationship. After having vivid fantasies about the woman she saw on the street and having one of her female friends behave flirtatiously towards her, she becomes troubled about her sexual identity. One friend, the openly gay Valentin, seems to understand her confusion and takes her to a gay dance bar. After some time, Adèle leaves and walks into a lesbian bar, where she experiences assertive advances from some of the women. The blue haired woman is also there and intervenes, claiming Adèle is her cousin to those pursuing Adèle. The woman is Emma, a graduating art student. They become friends and begin to spend more time with each other. Adèle's friends suspect her of being a lesbian and ostracise her at school. Despite the backlash, she becomes very close to Emma. Their bond increases and before long, the two share a kiss at a picnic. They later have sex and begin a passionate relationship. Emma's artsy family is very welcoming to the couple, but Adèle tells her conservative, working-class parents that Emma is just a tutor for philosophy class.

Victor and Danny met in prison and hatched a plan to kidnap and demand ransom for the only child of a rich family. The film opens with scenes in which they make meticulous preparations to carry out the kidnap. They take their victim, Alice, her head hooded, to a soundproofed room. They cut off her clothing and tie her to a bed with a ball-gag buckled into her mouth. They force her to look at a camera as she is photographed naked. They then dress her in a tracksuit, put a hood on her head and leave her. They bag up both her and their clothes for disposal and Vic sends the pictures to her father as first step towards making the ransom demand. In continuing graphic scenes, they explain to Alice that she needs to sign when she needs the toilet and strip her lower half in order that she use a bed pan whilst still tied up. Neither shows any emotion during her humiliation but Vic, who is dominant, questions Danny's resolve now that the formerly 'hypothetical girl' has become real.

Au début des années 1990, le sida se propage depuis près de dix ans. Les militants d'Act Up-Paris s’activent pour lutter contre l'indifférence générale. Au cours des « R.H. » (réunions hebdomadaires menées par deux médiateurs se chargeant de donner les tours de paroles) se décident les actions pour que soient mises en œuvre les trithérapies pour les malades atteints du sida, spécialement les « zaps » (irruption au siège du laboratoire pharmaceutique Melton Pharm, aspersions de faux-sang, notamment contre le directeur de l'Agence française de lutte contre le sida), les die-in, les distributions de préservatifs et de brochures d'information dans les lycées, les tracts dont chaque slogan provocateur est débattu et approuvé par l’assemblée. Les scènes militantes alternent avec les scènes de fête dans lesquelles les militants dansent au son de la house, leur énergie sur la piste faisant s'élever au-dessus d'eux la poussière qui se transforme « en molécules et virus se multipliant et se contaminant ».
