SYNOPSIS

This fly on the wall documentary provides a disturbing insight into the year-long development of manufactured K-Pop girl group 9 Muses.  The carefully selected young women struggle to preserve a sense of self under the progressively oppressive tuition implemented by their producers. As their ambitions transform into aimlessness and exhaustion, the group's members reflect on the individual cost of fame and who really benefits from their efforts.  

Ages 15+
