Something In The Water

Erin loves Mark and Mark loves Erin 

Erin and Mark are in love. That fanatical all-consuming kind of love where only they matter. 

They have a perfect life; she's a documentary maker, he's a city banker.

They own a beautiful London town house and are planning their wedding, including a luxury honeymoon to Bora Bora.

Mark loves Erin and Erin loves Mark 

But when we meet this couple they are in a forest; one is dead, the other digging a grave.

What went wrong? How could their love bring them to this moment amidst the trees?

Jumping back four months we meet Erin and Mark as a couple…  

And so their anti-love story begins.
