Logline: 
A mentally unstable fugitive reluctantly uses experimental mind-control technology to save a former lover from a vengeful master thief.
Synopsis/Details: 

One minute MADI’s getting ready for a romantic night out with JOEL (too gorgeous for his own good). The next, she finds herself stabbing him repeatedly.

When Madi first met Joel, she was homeless, having lived on the streets since a traumatic high school event. After she tries and fails to pick his pocket, Joel takes pity on her and introduces her to his crew: a group of thieves that use mind-control technology.

Madi immediately hits it off with both Joel and crew leader BRIGID, a woman as close to perfect as you get (beautiful, intelligent, stylish, competent). But Brigid doesn’t like to share, and soon grows jealous of Madi and Joel’s escalating relationship. It’s unclear exactly whom she’s more jealous of.

After attacking Joel against her will, Madi evades arrest and goes on the hunt. Armed with only the prototype of the mind-control technology (versus Brigid’s advanced model), Madi sets out to defeat Brigid before she can finish the job with Joel.
