Here’s a bit more about All In Her Head:
Alison feels like she's losing her mind. She is convinced that her ex-husband Jack is following her. She is certain she recognises the strange woman who keeps approaching her at work. She knows she has a good reason to be afraid.
But she can't remember why.
Then the mention of one name turns her world upside down...
