UK law allows ‘reasonable force’ to repel an intruder. Nick summers strikes out at a prowler in his home. His nightmare has just begun.
There were 745,000 reported break-ins across the UK last year. That’s 3 burglaries every two minutes.
Nick and Mel Summers, who are trying for a family, are about to become just another statistic. Except that Nick fights back with disastrous consequences.
He now faces a moral dilemma that will shape the rest of his life. Does he call the police and face a manslaughter charge and certain prison? Or, does he do the unthinkable - dispose of the body?
His decision begins to create unbearable tension between the young couple. After a further, sinister act of aggression that occurs in the Summers’ home, their survival instincts are pushed to the limit.
Is Nick simply protecting what he loves or someone who turns a terrible accident into a full-blown crime?
