"After an acid attack by her ex, young mother Jade (newcomer Vicky Knight) from East London is left physically and emotionally scarred. But Jade is no passive victim; she makes her own choices – good or bad – and deals with the consequences. Spiralling down a self-destructive path, Jade finds short-lived solace in online liaisons where she finds the passion and connection she has been craving. However, as family life and friendships start to crumble, she may have to hit rock bottom before finding her path back to her daughter and herself." (Sydney Film Festival)Hide
