EUROPEAN PREMIERE - Withdrawn Avery Malone, a wannabe writer and lonely librarian, gets her big break when she's hand-selected to assist her hero, reclusive author, Caleb Conrad. Whisked away to Caleb's remote country estate, Avery is given her one and only task: to participate in a controlled psychological experiment in fear that will serve as the basis for Caleb's next thriller novel. What could possibly go wrong? Exploring personal themes of sacrifice, remorse and absolution, Braden Croft’s third independent feature after FEED THE GODS and HEMORRHAGE, is a compelling study into consent and the abuse of power.
