The Refuge tells the story of four girls living in a women’s aid centre forced to take an antidepressant treatment. The film is a protest to the current crisis in Britain that these institutions are facing due to government cuts.
The film features the actress Lujza Richter Hugo known for her role as "Princess Mona Braganza" in "Phantom Thread" by Paul Thomas Anderson; and the international model Demi Hannah Scott known for her constant work at SHOWstudio with Nick Knife, her worldwide campaign for Uniqlo, Fenty Puma and so on.
With an all-female cast and a female director, The Refuge aims to call the attention on gender disparity in the filmmaking industry.
