After a long day at work, Alicia - a young wife - rushes home to prepare a meal for her wealthy husband, Chris, who has been away on a business trip for weeks. Her high hopes and excitement turns sour when she finds him lifeless on their matrimonial bed. The experience triggers her mental health issues and renders her unstable, unhinged and barely able to speak. Hidden security camera footages timestamp Alicia in the house at the time of Chris’ death. This leaves everyone including the cops - and Ade, who is Chris’ twin sister and Alicia’s best friend - believing she’s the killer.
Julius, an austere detective sergeant, finds irregularities in the case against Alicia and puts everything on the line to dig deeper in search of the dark secrets that plagued the lives and relationship of the two lovers. What he finds is a trail of violence, lies, and psychosis deeply rooted in those unsuspecting closed-door conversations and interactions that are commonplace in households.
Through a ruthlessly twisted and thrilling series of events, Domestic takes you on a twinkle-toed, high-speed, chase for the truth about our homes that we always ignore.

"An unforgettable—and Hollywood-bound—new thriller... A mix of Hitchcockian suspense, Agatha Christie plotting, and Greek tragedy."
The Silent Patient is a shocking psychological thriller of a woman’s act of violence against her husband—and of the therapist obsessed with uncovering her motive.
Alicia Berenson’s life is seemingly perfect. A famous painter married to an in-demand fashion photographer, she lives in a grand house with big windows overlooking a park in one of London’s most desirable areas. One evening her husband Gabriel returns home late from a fashion shoot, and Alicia shoots him five times in the face, and then never speaks another word.

Theo Faber is a criminal psychotherapist who has waited a long time for the opportunity to work with Alicia. His determination to get her to talk and unravel the mystery of why she shot her husband takes him down a twisting path into his own motivations—a search for the truth that threatens to consume him....
