Successful journalist Theresa gets talked into a blind date with computer consultant Tony. As blind dates go, this one could have been a lot worse, but Theresa quickly realises that Tony isn’t the man of her dreams. She extricates herself from their second rendezvous as tactfully but firmly as possible.
That should have been the end of the story … but Tony doesn’t stop calling her at work. He continues to inundate her with flowers. And then he finds out where she lives, and the blind date turns into a living nightmare. In search of help, desperate Theresa finds support where she least expects it, but will she be able to regain control of her life?
