A playful spell goes terribly wrong, putting the innocent Mary (Cody Carmichael) at the mercy of the sexually abusive demon Naushka (Bethany Carter Howlett). Now her sister Jessica (Andy San Dimas) and her best friend Diana (Tia Summers) must accept the help of the troubled demon hunter Annatolia (Dia Zerva).
As in Concubine, some of the scenes in the Shattered depict sexual violence. The film contains graphic nudity, sexual violence, and sexual coercion.
The filmmakers consulted with the production team that created the graphic lesbian rape reenactments in She Stole My Voice. However, they ultimately decided to make the scenes in The Shattered "more dreamlike and less realistic, to tell a story instead of frighten the viewer."
Much like Stanton Audemars's banned interactive movie, Stockholm: An Exploration of True Love, the film The Shattered explores the boundary between love and hate, and how those emotions are experienced through sex.
