Stand. Watch. Protect. Repeat.
Working security is a cruise most days.
It's the female security guards at Thompson Security - Naz, Tribe and Joey - who work on the sidelines to keep it all in line. But things turn to s#*t when they become bystanders to a sexual assault.
Approximate running time: 80mins
Warnings: Haze, strobe lighting, loud sounds, coarse language, descriptions of sexual assault
