She is his captive. Her husband calls her Jane. That is not her name. She lives in a small farm cottage, surrounded by vast, open fields.
Everywhere she looks, there is space. But she is trapped. No one knows how she got to the UK: no one knows she is there.
Visitors rarely come to the farm; if they do, she is never seen. Her husband records her every movement during the day.
If he doesn't like what he sees, she is punished. For a long time, escape seemed impossible. But now, something has changed. She has a reason to live and a reason to fight. Now, she is watching him, and waiting . . .
