Sixteen-year-old Vivien is trapped in The Vestalis Academy, a prison-like boarding school, keeping to herself and sticking her neck out for no one. Until she is reunited with Sophia -- the former friend who betrayed her. Together the girls embark on a dangerous search to uncover the horrifying truth behind their imprisonment. Soon running for their lives, the girls must save themselves or die trying.
“Danishka Esterhazy has crafted a sinister tale that is essential viewing for our time,” said Raven Banner’s Managing Partner, Michael Paszt. “It’s a real honour to be working with Danishka and her team.”
Produced by Toronto’s Markham Street Films, the feature stars Katie Douglas (Mary Kills People), Celina Martin (Public Schooled), Sara Canning (The Vampire Diaries) and Peter Outerbridge (The Expanse).
