Fifteen years ago, when she was a kid, Vanessa was almost murdered by her best friend. Now she is an investigative journalist in a bind, and she decides to do what anyone would do - exploit her personal story by disguising herself and interviewing her childhood best friend and attempted murderer. Vanessa must navigate her estranged family and confront her trauma in the age of going viral. Who has the right to tell our story? When we have been traumatized, how do we pass that pain onto others - and can we ever really heal?

The production team includes Jeremy Hollis (scenic design), Christina Leinicke (costume design), Benjamin Carne (lighting design) and Adrian Hadlock (props design).
