Joseph is out of a job and low on money. So, he decides to rent out his rooms on Airbnb. His landlord, Matabang, convinces him to install hidden cameras and spy on the females that stay there. He then shares these videos with a group of men called The Union. Then comes along a new tenant, Clara, who is not conventionally attractive. Matabang is very upset, but one member of The Union, Ezra, is very attracted to Clara.
It’s unsettling how easily Joseph goes along with this plan. It’s also upsetting when he tells Natalie, the other roommate, about it, and she decides not to do anything about it. Because of their lack of any moral qualms about it, the characters seem unreal and despicable. Also, one character claims that the police won’t do anything if their cameras are discovered. This is blatantly false. In fact, a New York hospital is being sued for $2.2 Million for unauthorized filming of two patients.
Christopher Donaldson’s performance as Ezra is the highlight. He expertly embodies the socially awkwardness and unintended creepiness of the character that is the most real in this story.
