Olivia Wilde (Her) gives a defining performance as an avenger who takes the law into her own hands, transforming herself into a brutally righteous underground heroine.
Sadie (Wilde), a survivor of domestic abuse, uses whatever force necessary to free other women in need. Contacted through a secret code, a disguised Sadie enters situations, and uses her refined Krav Maga martial arts skills over guns, to force out the abuser. Over time, Sadie’s own backstory is revealed and, with extreme tension, the film heads inexorably towards an explosive conclusion.
Offering a new perspective of what a super hero can be, the debut feature of Australian director Sarah Daggar-Nickson, skilfully strikes a balance between revenge thriller and a deeply emotional and affecting drama.
"This is [Sarah Daggar-Nickson's] first feature, and she executes it with an economy of means that’s highly detailed, suspenseful, and emotionally direct" – Variety
