SYNOPSIS

When Vicki gets a role in Daniel’s new theatre production, she thinks she has gotten the chance of her life. Little does she know this is only the beginning of repeated abuse by Daniel as part of his artistic process. When she turns to the people around her for support, she finds that everyone else seems to think her abuse is beneficial to her. Feeling like the only mad person in sunny, peaceful Singapore, she decides to take matters into her own hands. A wicked horror satire on power, art, and trauma, the film explores the hidden violence we live with in order to build a community

Saat Vicki mendapatkan peran dalam produksi teater baru milik Daniel, dia pikir dirinya mendapatkan sebuah kesempatan langka. Padahal ini adalah awal dari penganiayaan berulang oleh Daniel sebagai bagian dari proses artistiknya. Ketika ia mencari pertolongan dari orang sekitarnya, semua orang berpendapat bahwa penganiayaan yang terjadi padanya malah menguntungkan dirinya. Merasa seperti satu-satunya orang gila di Singapura yang cerah dan damai, ia memutuskan untuk mengambil tindakan sendiri. Sebuah horor satir kelam tentang kuasa, seni dan trauma, film ini mengeksplorasi kekerasan tersembunyi yang kita jalani untuk membangun sebuah tatanan kemasyarakatan.
