A woman vanishes after a fashion shoot with a photographer. He says she was murdered and has the photographic evidence, but her body is never found. The story is an ‘investigation’: a search for the hidden clues needed to find out what lies behind the mysteries of the photographic process.

It questions the power of image makers in a society driven by what it sees and where the image blurs the boundaries between fantasy and reality.
