A famous artist invites old friends to her new home for a long awaited reunion. But the celebration comes to an abrupt end when the host suffers a horrific accident. An almost unthinkable plan starts to take shape: could her suffering be the group’s next work of art?

Ianthe Demos directs a cast that includes Estelle Bajou, Eric Berryman, Nick Flint, Maja Wampuszyc and Richard Saudek.
