Reed is the young father of a newborn. Pressure at work and the prospect of stifling monogamy drive him mad. He kisses his wife goodbye and embarks on a business trip of his own design. The goal: To purge his darkest desires. The plan: Settle in a hotel, call an escort, drag her to the bathroom, and do to her what he wants. When he realizes that the girl has plans of her own, they engage in a dangerous game somewhere between reality and fantasy. Nicolas Pesce (The Eyes of My Mother) adapts Ryû Murakami’s novel and explores the way in which ordinary people become victims of their hidden desires in a stylized horror thriller which is also a dark comedy that does not take itself too seriously.
