Anna Delaney worked so hard for the 'perfect life'. However, cracks are forming. Memories from her past that she wished she would never think about again. What will she do? Can she fight it? Or will her mind crack?

The mind is a fragile thing, and life is never how it seems.

A dramatic thriller that will leave you on the edge and thirsty for more!

Aussi, vous parlez français! Et assez bon pour être honnête. Voulez-vous parler en anglais? ENGLISH: Once I start talking to a patient, I can figure out how to talk to them. Although, you have been
the best patient to talk because you are informal, just like me. Also, you speak French! And good enough to be honest. Do you want to speak in English?
