“COME HERE. COME CLOSER. I WANT TO SHOW YOU SOMETHING…”

Katie and her girlfriend Hope work at their local corner shop. The bell tinkles as familiar feet tread into the aisles, the sign swings gently from open to closed and they steal kisses beside tins of baked beans and instant noodles. For Katie, the little shop is a sanctuary. A place where she can hold onto Hope without anybody watching. So when new employee Michael arrives, everything unravels.

He’s lovely. He can juggle. He can name every bone in the human body. But as Michael is tugged into the tight-knit universe of the corner shop, the sands start to shift and the air begins to thicken.

Written by Tabitha Mortiboy and directed by Hannah Hauer-King, Damsel Productions presents The Amber Trap, a chilling portrait of craving and control.
