But as Marcella dives deeper into the case, the devastating changes to her personal life leave her in a fragile state. Struggling to cope, she experiences blackouts and extreme rage. When someone close to her estranged husband (NICHOLAS PINNOCK) is murdered, Marcella fears she may have been involved.
