Trapped in a prison-like school, 16-year-old Vivien and Sophia embark on a dangerous search to uncover the horrifying truth behind their imprisonment. Soon running for their lives, the girls must save themselves or die trying.
Featuring striking imagery and charismatic performances, this sci-fi thriller is an intense and furiously cerebral experience like no other.
“Channels The Handmaid’s Tale in the best possible ways.”
“One of Fantastic Fest’s best films…Don’t sleep on this one!”
“A sharp little sci-fi thriller that does dystopia right, and like all the best bleak visions of a future world, it offers commentary worth sinking your teeth into. Mercifully, it also offers a hope that’s both timeless, and strikingly timely.”
“One of the most chilling and relevant dystopian thrillers of 2018.
– YVR Screen Scene
“One of my favorite films of Fantastic Fest 2018.”
