Georg Letterer is an introvert modeler, who builds detail-obsessed prototypes. He receives an order from a famous Hollywood actress, Dolores Moor, to make a model of her extravagant villa. This is the opportunity for Georg to escape from suburban dreariness and the perfidious psychological terror of his brother. He tirelessly works on the detailed model and simultaneously falls for the unattainable Dolores. One day Georg discovers an unusual power: he is able to influence the physical reality of the villa through the prototype he is building. With his own interests in mind, Georg becomes a calculating puppeteer who holds the threads of life of everyone around him, just to win Dolores for himself.

The film is based on the Belgian comic book Dolores by François Schuiten & Benoit Peeters (text) and Anne Baltus (illustrations), published in 1991 by Casterman.
