Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
A weary London novelist looking to escape her failing marriage flees the city for her Yorkshire cottage only to find that country charm can mask menacing intent in director Tristram Powell's tense tale of romantic deceit. Daisy Langrish (Penelope Wilton) has finally broken free of her straining marriage, and upon arriving at her country cottage she is warmly greeted by her outwardly charming neighbor Henry Kent (Michael Kitchen). Though by all appearances a polite and respectable gentleman, Henry's benevolent offer to maintain Daisy's long-neglected garden masks decidedly malevolent intent. As the manipulative and obsessive Henry carefully conceals his all-consuming fondness for drink and erotica while setting a deadly emotional trap for his unsuspecting new neighbor, Daisy discovers all too late that her flight from the city was only the beginning of her harrowing journey.
