Based on true events, it’s 1971 in Ann Arbor, Michigan when Pamela, a bespectacled, student actress goes on her first movie audition. The strange-looking director Patrick enters and after probing small talk, hands her a script, one she has not had time to look over. He complains he cannot see her eyes through the camera lens, asks her to take off her glasses as we then switch in and out of her blurry perspective. Pamela begins to perform the scene. Happy with her work Patrick immediately requests that she remove her clothes. She resists but he insists she cannot get the part unless she disrobes. What happens next surprises her and us.
