About the film:

World Premiere at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival. As a serial killer stalks the city of Bucharest, Julia – a young actress who just moved to town with her boyfriend – notices a mysterious stranger watching her from across the street, and she becomes certain she’s being followed.

“Chloe Okuno has taken the well-worn genre of the stalker flick and given it a subtle jolt of freshness… sustains a strong ambiance of dread… keeping us in the dark and contemplating Julie’s sanity”

—Jordan Mintzer for The Hollywood Reporter
