SYNOPSIS

The Seasoning House is a soulless place where young girls are bought and sold for men’s pleasures. Here we meet Angel, a young orphaned girl enslaved by Viktor. Unbeknownst to her master, she moves between the walls and crawlspaces of the house - silently observing, learning and planning for her escape. When her closest confident is murdered, Angel can no longer contain her rage and sets out through both ingenuity and brutality to seek justice.
