Annie is the dream wife. Supportive, respectful, admiring – everything her husband wants her to be. And nothing at all like who she really is . . .

Annie is a prisoner in her own life. Her finances, her routine and her contact with the outside world are all controlled. Annie’s only reason for holding it together is her little boy. Her time with him keeps her sane, and at night she escapes into a dreamworld where the two of them are free.

But Annie is about to do a very bad thing.

And you won’t believe how she is going to do it…
