Lorraine (Melodie Sisk) is a nurse who preserves a contemptuous distance from just about everything. When a sideline in S&M sex work suggests itself, however, she's empowered to explore extremes… At once a bravura exercise in style, a daring black comedy and a solemn exploration of apathy and sexual dysfunction, this is one of the big discoveries of this year's EIFF. Please note this film contains strobing light effects and sexually explicit imagery. 'Part of the Edinburgh International Film Festival'.
