Synopsis

A psychological odyssey set in New York, which centers on an emotionally tortured woman, who, numbered by the cynicism of contemporary society and her incapacity to express herself authentically, transforms into a God-like entity with a ravenous desire for control. Once freed of the limits she thought insurmountable, her metamorphosis is complete; she is the master of her universe, practicing near complete sleep deprivation, subjecting others to her carnal desires, and entertaining fascistic thoughts.
