Who can she trust if she can’t trust herself?

Rachel Tyler and her husband David appear happy, prosperous and fulfilled. The big house, successful business, unblemished marriage… They have everything.

However, control, not love, fuels their relationship and David has no idea his wife indulges in drunken indiscretions.

When Rachel kills a man in a hit and run, the meticulously maintained veneer over their life begins to crack.

Destroying all evidence of the accident, David insists they continue as normal. Rachel though is racked with guilt and as her behaviour becomes increasingly self-destructive she not only inflames David’s darker side, but also uncovers her own long-suppressed memories of shame. Will Rachel have time to confront her past and look to a brighter future? Not if her husband has anything to do with it…
