Lines between romantic ideals and control become blurred when Tanya’s husband can no longer handle the stress of his career as a police officer. His warm kisses turn cold, and she is left to fight for her life. At the same time, Elizabeth’s idyllic life is marred when her charming husband manipulates her into believing she is going insane. Both women plot to leave, but the escape they seek may turn deadly.
