On the set of a horror film with artistic pretensions, beautiful Hollywood actress Mabel admits to being outside her comfort zone. She plays the role of a blind woman and the film she’s in, already anticipated by the media to be in bad taste, deals explicitly with deformity. The production has even cast several disabled actors, including Rosenthal, a nervous comedian with a major facial deformity. Mabel struggles to identify with him, but as their characters connect on camera, the actors do the same behind it.
As the film crew walks on the eggshells of political correctness and strange rumours begin to circulate about the abandoned hospital serving as a backdrop to the production, the boundaries between reality and fiction, fair representation and exploitation cinema, become excessively porous.
