The highly-anticipated second feature from Head on director Ana Kokkinos.

A secret he would not share. An obsession he could not control. A mystery he dare not resolve.

In Melbourne, a dancer-choreographer, on his way to purchase a pack of cigarettes, is abducted by three hooded women who keep him chained in a room for 18 days. While their prisoner, he is subjected to various humiliations and painful experiences, including rape and tattooing.

When he is finally freed, he begins a private search for the women that is almost as degrading as his captivity. He eventually comes to realise the futility of his search, and the urge to return to choreography tugs at him as his life gradually falls back to a pleasant, normal existence. But the trauma of his captivity is never far below the surface, and it finally explodes into temporary insanity.

A haunting mystery. An erotic horror story. An intimate portrait of a man stripped bare. A film about sex and power. The entanglement of victim and perpetrator. The healing power of love.
