Synopsis

Two lonely, damaged people are brought together by circumstance. Joseph is an unemployed widower, drinker, and a man crippled by his own volatile temperament and furious anger. Hannah is a Christian worker at a charity shop, a respectable woman who appears wholesome and happy. When the pair are brought together, Hannah appears as Joseph's potential savior, someone who can temper his fury and offer him warmth, kindness and acceptance. As their story develops Hannah's own secrets are revealed - her relationship with husband James is violent and abusive - and as events spiral out of control, Joseph becomes her source of succor and comfort.
