Vice is set in a near-future at a resort for the rich where synthetic humans are used as slaves for the wealthy guests to live out their darkest fantasies. The resort owner Julian (Willis) resets the humanoids every night, erasing their memories. But one, Kelly (Childers) malfunctions and retains every horrifying memory. She sets out to exact revenge on the tourists and the resort staff.

Vice is set to begin production in Alabama in March. K5 International is handling international sales.
