Synopsis


Bella hears footsteps from the attic and objects disappear from beneath her eyes: she thinks she is losing her mind and her husband, Jack, agrees.


It isn't until an outsider arrives that she shifts the accusations away from herself.


Bella fights for control but can she discern what is real and what is false?


Gaslight could not be more relevant right now - challenging our views on emotional abuse.
