How far will a politician go?

Bold, satirical and uncomfortably funny, Exodus explores systematic deception and the indifference to human suffering.

In her bid to become the country’s leader, Home Secretary Asiya Rao prepares to make a major policy announcement that will establish her as the front-runner of the political race. Alongside her cut-throat and calculating advisor Phoebe, she embarks on a publicity stunt starting with a photo shoot by the white cliffs of Dover. But rather than the tide washing her reputation clean, something else washes up…

An omen or an opportunity? The women are determined to keep their eyes on the prize, no matter the cost, even if it’s a human one.
