Storyline

Cassandra Andreadis is a professional fashion photographer with a secret. A ghost has haunted her almost her entire life, and in an attempt to find peace, she is about to undertake a journey to the place where her story began. Finding herself among extended family in a strangely foreign place, Cassandra begins to see things through a different prism. Against the closed world of her own people, she witnesses the awful truth of another hidden life leaking out onto the darkened streets around her. When Cassandra meets an impossibly young woman caught up in the world of human sex trafficking, she understands she can no longer be the bystander. Now, Cassandra is about to risk everything to make this one thing right, and in so doing, will uncover a web of evil that stretches across the globe. Written by Glenn Fraser

A suspenseful, haunting snapshot in this short and perfectly formed film, delving into the misery surrounding sex trafficking
18 April 2017 | by laraburquestSee all my reviews

I watched this movie in a packed cinema and the credits rolled to great applause, and rightly so. This film achieved that brilliant and elusive thing - the magic that doesn't always happen when watching a short: that you are fully immersed within a few moments of looking at the screen, believing in the characters instantly, and willingly finding yourself on the emotional journey alongside the main characters. It is BEAUTIFULLY shot; it shows us the story at every raw and real turn, rather than just tells us. It's suspenseful, and a little haunting.....the subject material is important and difficult, but it's sensitively handled. Events are resolved to an extent but you are left wanting more, and wondering. This could easily be a film for TV or a launching off point for something more from these film-makers. I love the obvious dedication with which this was made by all the storytellers involved. We truly loved watching this.....it's important that passionate people keep making unique gems like this film. And aside from all of that, the performances were excellent - so much talent in one package..
