When Alice, a naturopath, and her CEO husband, Heath, bring their new baby home, everyone is happy. Everyone, that is, except Alice. In her Victorian mansion in a prestigious neighbourhood of Sydney something is not quite right. She is haunted by nightmares of their kurrajong tree bursting into flames and destroying them all.
Heath has hired a young personal assistant. When he becomes increasingly distant and starts to work late, Alice fears the worst. Self-doubt turns to paranoia. Delusions take on a life of their own.
Alice’s ex-lover arrives unexpectedly offering her everything she thinks she needs: attention, love, and the drugs she enjoyed when she was young. But he broke her heart then and she knows he can do it again.
An older woman tries to warn Alice to get help. But Alice doesn’t trust her. Will the young mother learn from the older woman’s horrific mistakes? In this story about dependence, guilt and redemption, and the healing power of unconditional love, one woman proves that big battles are often fought at home, for family, behind closed doors.
