  • Synopsis

    Sharon's dead. She said she was raped and no one believed her. Then she killed herself and they believed that just fine. Now her sister Maria and best friend Nadine want revenge. So they contact Joanna. Joanna is an urban legend; a brutal vigilante who tortures and kills rapists. She arrives in town and soon Maria and Nadine are waiting in an abandoned ghost estate while Joanna very, very slowly murders the man who caused Sharon's death. But when Joanna starts uncovering more details as to what actually happened to Sharon, will Nadine and Maria come to regret the force they've unleashed? For Joanna is not justice. She is not the law. She is not society. She is what comes after.
