A television reporter is assigned a story that involves investigating the disappearance of a child. She journeys to a town where the child is believed to be held, only to become confounded by encounters that mount toward Gothic surrealism.Slowly,she realizes that she has not been assigned a story at all, but is on a personal quest that draws her into a world of self-loathing, trauma, and indefinite female identity. As she approaches the location of the missing child, she also discovers the truth surrounding the disappearance of countless other children, and a society that conceals the horror while thriving on its inevitability.
