The day after a party, Mélodie wakes up in a painful state of emptiness. Wounded in the face, the foggy vision of the night before is so tenacious that her memory plays tricks on her. Little by little, she tries to explain the inexplicable.

Our Review:

Every thing about this film is perfect. The cast, script, delivery, background score, direction etc. Suspense is untangled at every scene which keeps the pace quick.

Date rape drug is a serious issue. It weakens a victim so they are unable to resist or fight back. It makes the victim fully or partially unconscious. The ending is great and it it is left to the viewer for interpretation. Overall a great film to watch!
