plays: Nick, a "seductive psychopath who needs little excuse
to murder whoever happens to be handy"
Baxendale stars as young lawyer Lorna Johnston. She is reunited with
three friends from university after another friend commits suicide.
They're a reckless and irresponsible group, but they have nowhere to go,
so she takes them into her home. She gets involved with one of them,
Nick (John Hannah), but she kicks the threesome out when she finds out
that he's also been sleeping with Mel (Susan Lynch). Nick, Mel, and
Ben (Ben Daniels) then set out to ruin her life. They threaten to
reveal to her law firm a previous shoplifting arrest and the information
that she has been carrying on an affair with a married man on the firm's
property. She is fired from her job, but the gang is not satisfied.
They frame her for the murder of her lover's wife and threaten to turn
her in if she does not give them £20,000. She realizes that
she is in the same position as was the friend who committed suicide and
the police believe that she killed the woman, so it's up to Lorna to confront
her old pals and end their threats and blackmail by herself.
It was quite a scary thriller, I thought. It's always interesting
to see John Hannah as a "baddie", since he's very convincing at it.
