This is the story of how one man became entangled in the murky waters of 21st-century sexual manners; and how easily the word of one person can transform your life, causing you to question your own past, and fear your own thoughts. When a single, thirty-something writer living in London awoke to find a woman he'd met just hours earlier saying she loved him, an alarm bell started to ring. Six months later, his life changed for the worse. Told through dramatised sequences and interviews with friends, family, colleagues and neighbours, this First Cut film reveals how a confident young man can end up as a terrified victim.
