A chilling, pro-active and powerfully unnerving #MeToo drama – this is a film that everyone should be talking about.
Jane (Julia Garner) is a recent college graduate and aspiring film producer, who has recently landed her dream job as a junior assistant to a powerful movie mogul. Her day is much like any other assistant’s, but as Jane follows her daily routine, she grows increasingly aware of the questionable behaviour of her boss toward her female peers. She decides to take a stand, only to discover the true insidious nature of the system into which she has entered.
