Lucy has had a long day. Waking up on her sofa, she is concerned to realise that her brother Kyle has not come home, and also that this is only the start of her problems.
Through the unlocked door, Lucy' s lover James enters with a revelation which puts them both into mortal danger. James has made a big mistake, and he knows it, but does he really think that he can keep the secret?
As the play continues, it becomes clear that James believes he can control Lucy, in the dynamic of domestic abuse. Little does he know that she is well aware of what he has done, and she has called the police.
But where is Kyle?
