Plot – Spoilers:
A noted dancer in Melbourne, Daniel is abducted by three women and held captive for 12 days during which he is sexually abused. When he returns, his girlfriend and dance-partner Bridget refuses to believe his story. This sends him down a spiral to not only unravel the identity of his abductors but also cope with the stigma of being a male raped by women.
Anna Torv who plays Daniel’s girlfriend also plays the lead abductor. According to the director, this doesn’t necessarily imply she was a captor – she was cast in the role, because she was best suited. Whatever that means.
If Daniel couldn’t recognize a woman he’s lived with for three years, from her exposed eyes, that sounds a bit weak – it’s therefore possible that his imagination during captivity saw Bridget as his captor. That’s a theory at least.
