Jade’s life is coached on the daily by her FREYA – an omnipresent personal assistant whose friendly name in fact stands for “Federally Regulated Enquiry and Yield Assistant”. Not only does the system ply her with information, stats and guidance, it’s also helpful with managing her social-media presence. A fateful string of events soon has Jade reconsidering much about the ways she’s become conditioned to live in this sharp dark comedy/drama/sci-fi from Canadian filmmaker and actor Camille Hollett-French (HER STORY), starring writer Rhona Rees.
