The Hanging Garden

One woman's descent into madness and ultimately the resurrection of her soul in the face of sadistic adversity.

A “Brendan Southwell” FILM
WRITTEN BY Brendan Southwell

In Eden, you cannot move and you feel nothing. You want to scream but no sound comes out. In Eden, you are made to watch as you are taken apart physically and mentally. You only ever perform in The Hanging Garden. There is no second act.

Larva 308 is Victoria Sokol. Highly agitated and broken. Victoria's life beyond the isolation ward seems incomprehensible, her very soul tortured as she fights the insanity of a committed life. The trauma of her arrival is made worse by the trauma of her suffering at the hands of her tormentors known only as the Guardians.

Escape is met with punishment.
Disobedience is met with punishment
Being an inmate is met with punishment.

"Larva 308. You are next for dissection."
