Beverly Hills, 1979. Submerge beneath the surface of L.A and dive into the mind of Daisy, a young housewife with a dreamy life that isn’t sweet. This darkly mesmerizing show portrays sexual exploitation as a culture nurtured by beauty standards, gender ideals and poor sex education. A journey to womanhood distorted and damaged by cultural norms. On the backdrop of the 2017 Hollywood abuse scandals, it begs the question ¬– what aspects of current culture are blurring the perspective of sexual abuse and gender equality?
