Synopsis

On the surface everything appears enviable about Kate's life; a beautiful son (Jake), a loving husband (Bill), good friends and a comfortable home in the suburbs. As we start to lift the edges though we see that Kate's life is spiralling out of control at the hands of Bill's intimidation and abuse. With the help of her friend Sally and a chance encounter with a stranger also enduring a similar domestic situation (May), Kate realises she has to escape her domestic Hell for the sake of her and Jake's safety.
