Sex, lies and online dating

Nancy is a self-destructive housewife who has fallen into a deep state of depression. Her relationship with her husband Albert has fallen apart, and Nancy strikes up a violent relationship with Louis whom she meets on the internet. What Louis doesn't know is that Nancy's reason for meeting him in real life, is not just that she wants to have an affair — she believes that Louis is the man who can end her misery by killing her. But their future may hold more than either of them bargained for.
