Laura Vandervoort, Benjamin Hollingsworth, Phil Brooks (a.k.a. C.M. Punk), Ted Atherton, Hanneke Talbot, Mackenzie Gray, Stephen McHattie, AJ Mendez, Kevin Hanchard and Greg Bryk star; the synopsis: “Aspiring fashion designer Rose Miller [Vandervoort] has her dreams turned into a nightmarish reality when a freak accident leaves her horribly disfigured. After receiving a miracle procedure involving an experimental skin graft from the mysterious Burroughs Clinic, Rose is transformed into the beauty of her dreams. But nothing comes without a cost and Rose begins to feel terrifying side effects that tear at her last threads of sanity. What price will Rose have to pay to have everything she ever wanted? It may just cost her her humanity.”
