Phea is an aspiring singer-songwriter who feels stuck. Her music career has stalled, and her relationship to her girlfriend Justine is on the precipice. So when Justine stops answering her calls, Phea tries to find her to get some explanation — but she is soon drawn into the orbit of a dangerous human trafficker that puts her own life, and Justine’s, on the line. She swiftly discovers that she would do whatever it takes to save her lover. Come for the emotionally and politically resonant lesbian spin on the myth of Orpheus, and stay for the extraordinary debut and music of Sherika Sherard — the singer/songwriter cast as Phea after the director saw her busking in a London tube station.
