A nightclub toilet attendant is forced to choose between saving herself or harming a regular punter.
In a Glasgow nightclub, Tolu, a Nigerian toilet attendant desperate for survival manipulates the behaviour of unsuspecting women for the titillation of men watching behind the mirrors. Tonight a line has been crossed and she is forced to hand out a bottle of water that has been drugged. Tolu struggles with the choice she has to make when Louise, a regular punter, and the only person that Tolu has a connection with becomes the target and is drugged. The night unravels into degradation and humiliation until a broken Tolu finds the strength to break free.
