Tension mounts as she is buffeted by interactions with her abusive husband, demanding father, and meek paramour. This housewife, who initially appears outwardly unassuming and unremarkable, is shown to possess an inner landscape of the mind which is twisted and scarred.

Secret after secret is gradually revealed, until the chilling and disturbing conclusion. Written by Tad Dibbern See less
