Synopsis: "It's Halloween night, and Miranda is desperate for a way out. She's drowning in debt, may be falling for her sugar daddy, and is on the run from her date who has threatened to kill her. When she meets Graham and Tanya, a door opens, for all of them... but is what's beyond a treat or a trick? A story of complicated lost souls grappling with the costs of love, money, and the American Dream."
