When society rejects the acting dreams of a young thespian named Ayna, he uses his skills to birth a strange, new profession. For a profitable exchange, Ayna becomes a prison stand-in for rich incarcerates, living out their sentence through his favourite art. After many successful performances, Ayna finally calls for the curtain when he meets the girl next door. With a new-found meaning to life, Ayna decides to bring an end to his career with one final performance. Unfortunately, this will prove to be his most consumptive role to date as he falls down a rabbit hole of crime and corruption.
