Angela Black looks on the face of it to have it all - a beautiful family and home, no money worries, days spent volunteering at an animal shelter.

But behind closed doors, she is hiding that her seemingly charming husband Olivier is a controlling and violent man who has terrorised her for most of her adult life.

Too scared to leave him, Angela has become skilled at covering up her bruises and explaining away her injuries - until one night she has an encounter with a stranger who blows her world apart.

With her children at a sleepover, Angela goes out for a drink, but outside the pub she runs into private investigator Ed who tells her some shocking truths that Olivier has been hiding.
