Based on the description, stating that “the world battles against a monstrous, oppressive force”, Demimonde will likely have suspenseful controversial twists to its story. Somehow, Olive Reed’s family is thrust in a convoluted conspiracy at the middle of everything. The extensive filming location already indicate sort of a chase for truth just to be reunited with her family.

Something new and hopefully interesting.
