How does love become toxic? Dignity and self-respect come at a terrible price. Will Mia submit to Wolfgang's cruel narcissism, or will she continue her quest for true love?

One moment, you are passionately in love, completely absorbed and everything is blissful and then... after marrying the man of her dreams, Mia Fidelio is excited to ride the roller coaster with Wolfgang Schmidt, but with dark shadows surrounding him, the ride soon plunges into an unfathomable chasm of darkness!

Mia braces herself on the verge of the long drop as life also throws her a curve ball. She experiences an assault that causes her to quickly lose her innocence. Wolfgang is so self-absorbed in his own dark thoughts that he fails to rescue her or acknowledge what has truly happened, leaving Mia feeling alone and ashamed. They have two children, and Mia's world is shattered when they learn that their daughter, Chloe, has cerebral palsy. She switches to autopilot, hanging on to this bumpy ride, her knuckles whitening, remaining strong for her family, believing that it is best if they stay together. Although she is tirelessly devoted to helping everyone around her, running the house, balancing her career, and helping her husband accept the fact that they have a less than perfect child, she feels hurt and betrayed by his behaviour, and she is ill-prepared to deal with his games. These events cause their lives to veer into a completely different trajectory at maximum speed, as he takes advantage of her kind heart and nature, as well as her uncanny ability to understand, as his darkest desires and most sinister thoughts begin to unfold in front of her.

The anxious Mia feels trapped, stuck on this ride, unaware that her marriage is in a state of crisis and her relationship in ruins. She is too overwhelmed with everyday life to notice that her existence is imperceptibly getting harder. What happens if Wolfgang does not have his way? What will she accept in the name of love? What will she sacrifice to save it?

In the end, Mia confronts the truth after over 25 years of a loveless marriage and detests his nature. Perseverance and gradual enlightenment give her the strength to find a new direction. Join Mia, in experiencing her journey.
