Psychological thriller about a spouse of a man convicted for insider trading's horrifying struggle with the unexpected side effects of an experimental psychiatric drug.

Housewife Emily Taylor, required to see a psychiatrist after a suicide attempt in the wake of her husband's release from a prison sentence for insider trading, is prescribed an experimental drug known as Ablixa, which promises to permit her to resume living a normal life save for the occasional sleepwalking episode. Emily's problems are only compounded, however, when she stabs her husband to death whilst sleepwalking one night, leading to a whirlwind trial and subsequent insanity plea that seems destined to drive her and those around her into true madness.
