She lives a very routine life; wakes up, drinks tea, goes to work, goes home, picks out her clothes for the next day, goes to sleep, and then wakes up and does it all over again.
After seeing on the news that a woman was murdered on her street around the same time that she got home the night before Ana becomes increasingly paranoid and haunted by the woman that was killed.

In this collaboration with Camelia Dee and Bella Santos, I sought to blur the line between horror fantasy and reality. The nightmares which haunt the main character are all too real and disturbingly familiar for women around the world. Only through recognition of this perspective can we as a society make changes over time and perhaps one day a woman will be able to walk down a city street alone at night without feeling like she’s an unwitting character in a horror film.
