Storyline

Victoria wakes with a head-ache and bandaged wrists,pills spilled on the floor. A strange sign is flickering on the television but she can remember nothing. Outside she meets Jem, a young woman who explains that the signal on the television set comes from the White Bear transmitter. It has turned most of the population into voyeurs who do nothing but watch and sometimes film as a deadly elite known as the hunters kill those unaffected by the signal,such as Jem and Victoria. Escaping from a hunter they reach the White Bear transmitter,which they intend to destroy. However the White Bear set-up is not what it first appears and nor is Victoria. Written by don @ minifie-1

Awful Director
18 June 2017 | by dicksartoriSee all my reviews

This film had an excessive use of the "shaky cam" with a continuous camera movement in every scene. It became nauseas to watch and after a half hour I had to change channels. Never got to see the end.

I don't know what the director was thinking but he should find another line of work.
