Storyline

Set in the mid-90's, it is a dark and brutal story about Eugene, an outcast photographer who becomes obsessed with protecting underage prostitute Josephine. She has escaped a war-torn country only to be trapped in the illegal sex trade by corruption and a powerful underworld criminal named Daddy. For Eugene, Josephine represents a symbol of purity in the darkness - when he takes her photograph there is something captivating about her and she quickly becomes his muse. When a jaded but calculating assistant at an arts magazine, Polly, shows interest in Eugene's photos it could be a way out of the sex trade for Josephine, out of obscurity and rejection for Eugene, and out of a hopeless life for both. But Daddy won't let go of Josephine and crossing the powerful pimp means danger and death. How far will Eugene go for recognition and a chance to achieve his dream? Is Eugene saving Josephine? Or is he using her? Written by Screen Australia

Cringy Acting
20 September 2020 | by HorrorFlickFanaticSee all my reviews

Cringworthy acting. None of the characters were likable. The story and the decisions made by the characters are illogical.

But the B/W cinematography was decent. Unfortunately, the film in whole fails for me.
