He discovers the darkest parts of himself when he turns the camera on Ceara, who humiliates men for money. An initially tantalizing documentary project turns into a private investigation as Julian digs deeper into Ceara’s questionable professional life. The obsession with documenting his subject soon becomes a matter of life and death.
