“A brash, gutsy, morbidly funny first feature from actor-filmmaker-podcaster Dasha Nekrasova.”
– Guy Lodge, Variety

“Thrilling and Unforgettable. This hallucinatory pastiche is even more than the sum of its cinematically riveting parts. ”
– Christian Blauvelt, IndieWire
Synopsis
While out apartment hunting, college pals Noelle and Addie stumble upon the deal of a lifetime: a posh duplex on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. But soon after moving in, a more sinister picture of the apartment emerges when a mysterious woman arrives and claims the property used to belong to the infamous and recently-deceased Jeffrey Epstein.

With this news, Noelle becomes obsessed with the visitor—to the point of infatuation. As the pair plunge deeper into the conspiracies of the Epstein case, Addie falls into her own bizarre state: a pseudo-possession complete with inexplicable fits of age-regressed sexual mania. As they peel back on these strange occurrences, the truth reveals itself to be more twisted than they could have ever imagined.
