An enigmatic fish-out-of-water thriller.

When reserved teenager Ruth finds a smeared lipstick stain on her boyfriend Tom’s mirror and a strand of red hair on his T-shirt, a sense of unease creeps into their caravan. Refusing to confront Tom with the discovery, Ruth’s mind whirls with spectres of jealousy. When she starts to work with the confident and vivacious Jade, her scarlet nails and the hint of red in her hair amplifies Ruth’s growing fixation. Ruth tries to keep her misgivings at bay but her haunting suspicions begin to feed an obsession that threatens her relationship with Tom. As a distance opens up between them, Ruth finds herself both intrigued and fearful of getting closer to Jade. Little did she know something entirely different from jealousy may be haunting her…
