She is his number one fan.
Having rescued Paul from the accident that’s left him with broken legs, Annie is now nursing Paul back to health. The storm that led to Paul’s accident has caused road closures and power cuts but Annie has promised to get him to hospital and to call his agent as soon as she can.
But if that’s the truth... then why is his bedroom door locked?
As Paul tests the boundaries of his confinement, he pulls a thread which rapidly unravels Annie’s lies.
