Actor Julie leaves her familiar life behind to move with her husband, Francis, to the Romanian capital of Bucharest. She is lost in translation, can’t seem to make friends, and feels watched. At first, it’s just eyes from a window across the street, but soon a man appears to follow her every step. As the latest victim of a serial killer is discovered, Julie is convinced that her life is in danger. Chloe Okuno’s feature debut hearkens back to the paranoia thrillers of the 1960s and ’70s—an elegant, disturbing piece full of suspense.

Chloe Okuno
is a graduate of UC Berkeley with a master’s degree from the American Film Institute Conservatory. Based in Los Angeles, she is the director of the award-winning horror short Slut.
