Jack is on his way to a Halloween party hosted by the girl of his dreams. Being a self-confessed loser when it comes to the opposite sex, he doesn’t hold out much hope of winning her over. Still, he has made great effort with his fancy dress costume in hopes of impressing her.
Meanwhile, around town, a young woman is walking barefoot and approaching individuals with one simple question – “Am I Beautiful?”
Dependant on the response, there could be disastrous, and bloody, consequences.
