Jodie Baxter is a British Captain returned home from Afghanistan after being injured in a rigged booby trap that has left her scarred physically and on a deep psychological accord. She struggles to reconnect with her husband on a sexual and emotional level and begins to realise the distance between herself and her child as her daughter hides pivotal moments of puberty from her that a mother should be there to support.
In the middle of moving out of their Service Family Accommodation Jodie escapes to her one place of solace, a hotel where she resides to be free and remember the past. It is there she sees and becomes obsessed with a couple, an abusive older man and a young prostitute who he controls. Following them back to their room Jodie enters their situation and it is through an act of extreme violence, lust and in her eyes ‘protection’ that we see what Jodie encountered in the desert and what has been haunting her deep within her cognisance.
