Synopsis

In a small seaside town, two schoolgirls are assaulted by a middle-aged man in a motel. Mia, a teenager who was working on reception that night, is the only witness. For fear of losing her job, she says nothing. Meanwhile, 12-year-old Wen, one of the victims, finds that her troubles have only just begun. Trapped in a world that offers them no safety, Mia and Wen will have to find their own way out.

Director’s Statement

This is a story about women. About the society that shapes our perceptions and values. About the choices that are allowed us and the courage to make different ones. About the interchangeable roles of the victim and the bystander. About truth and justice. And above all, about love.
