Maya (Rosario Dawson) is like many other college coeds, book smart yet shy, curious about sex, yet scared to let herself go. One night she meets Jared (played by Chad Faust). When their courtship turns from romantic to horrific in a single violent act, Maya’s world is ripped inside-out. Shutting out everyone in her life, Maya loses herself to a dark throbbing underworld of drugs and sexual experimentation. Lured by club DJ Adrian (Marcus Patrick), she awakens to a cold and vicious new strength, determined to seek revenge. But will Maya’s downward spiral consume and destroy her – or will she be saved by its power?

“Dawson’s intricate, imaginative performance equals those of Robert De Niro in Taxi Driver and Hillary Swank in Boys Don’t Cry. Essential to see.” – Matt Zoller Seitz, The New York Times
