Drowning is a slow burn psychological thriller where the lead character, Anna, uses wish fulfillment to break free from a cycle of abuse. Anna does not have the self-esteem needed to overcome the abuse she suffers in the real world, so she creates a new reality where she fights back. Anna is a prostitute who has been abused, exploited and manipulated for as long as she can remember. Disconnected from her emotions, Anna must take control of her own life, empower herself and learn to live her life on her own terms. Returning to her childhood home, Anna faces off against her enablers, her abusers, and her own demons.
