Pretty/Scary Review: Lumina

Written, directed and produced by Jennifer Thym, Lumina is a nine-part web series set in a complex universe of rival realms that are secretly politicizing unbeknownst to the people of modern day Hong Kong.

Recently broken-hearted, she has immersed herself in work and become the star employee at some sort of think tank.

Lumina knows very little about his world, and he isn’t eager to spill the goods. But she does know that he’s cute and seems to like her.
