    • Synopsis
    • Chris is a homicide detective, on the run and off the grid for mysterious reasons. On a visit to London he is shown round an old murder scene by colleague and friend Jim.

      The double murder was a strange one: the victims didn’t drop on being shot but seemed to keep moving despite taking bullets to the chest and head.

      On a hunch they investigate the property manager of the house where the murders were committed – in his luxury flat they find evidence of drug use and obsessively detailed charts and diagrams on the wall. On the charts are two names: Morland and Fisher. On further investigation the the property manager turns out to have been seeing a psychotherapist called Helen Fisher.

      With the help of an old colleague (and ex) Kathleen, Chris decides to go undercover as a patient to investigate Helen Fisher.

      But, as his therapy sessions continue, the lines between fantasy and reality begin to blur…
