Eliott Gast (Jason Behr, The Tattooist, The Grudge) is an American businessman. In a world where the U.S. is mistrusted, where bankers are despised and where capitalism teeters on the brink of collapse, Gast is guilty of at least one thing; success.

But that success makes Gast the target for a group of anti-globalisation extremists who kidnap him and broadcast his imprisonment over the Internet. After initially treating him well, his captors, led by a man known only as Blackbeard (Joe Ferrara, Elizabeth The Golden Age), begin to systematically deprive Gast of each of his senses. Through his nurse and liaison to the group Nim (Emma Catherwood Holby City, The Reeds) Gast learns that he will only be freed when the viewers of his ordeal have donated enough money to his captors to buy his freedom.

In the face of his intractably painful, terrifying, and ultimately numbing predicament, Gast finds himself slipping further and further into a meditative reflection on his past, and particularly on the joys and deceptions of his sense-saturated life before captivity. Through the fascinating, disturbing ordeal of Eliott Gast, Senseless traces the precise boundaries of empathy, searching for humanity in the digital era.

This stunningly original and utterly terrifying story, based on the novel by Stona Fitch, has been brought to the screen in unflinching detail by the BAFTA award winning director Simon Hynd.
