a daring revenge against the exploitative
Alice and Daphne, both successful and

The two women meet at Waisted.
Located in a remote Vermont mansion, the program promises

families for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The catch?
They must agree to always be on camera; afterward, the world
will see Waisted: The Documentary.

into obsession and instability...until they decide to take
matters into their own hands.
