Description:
Leading a fierce life-and-death struggle in the middle of a desert hell, Revenge's wounded heroine comes back to life to wreak vengeance on her male assailers.

Jen joins her married lover, Richard, for a romp at his secluded desert villa before his annual hunting vacation. However, when his leering pals arrive, they're a far cry from Richard's millionaire-Adonis charms, and they feel entitled to make their own advances on Jen and ignore her rejections. After being violently assaulted and left for dead in the middle of the desert, Jen comes back to life, and the men's hunting game is transformed into a ruthless manhunt.

"Revenge is the story of the sloughing of a woman. A young, frivolous and na?ve Lolita, subject to men's desires and whom men only see as a sexual object. An object that has to satisfy their desire. Even if it means dying. Even though she doesn't die physically, the character dies symbolically. Physically wounded, this sweet and inconsequential doll will be reborn as a harsh, beastly and unforgiving woman. One that no one can manipulate or abuse." (Coralie Fargeat)
