15 year-old Eve unexpectedly arrives at her older sister’s university house party. As the guests begin to lure her down a party culture rabbit hole, Eve uncovers a secret that sends the night spiralling. The morning after, an investigator sits each of them down to ask, “Can you tell me what happened last night?”

Lucy is a Nottingham born director whose skills behind the lens awarded her a cultural art scholarship. Though she's opted for a Law degree, she can still mix a mean mojito at weekends. Her influences include everyone from Steve McQueen to Sofia Coppola so she's never short of an oddly specific reference.
