The film tells the story of a serial killer, known by the police as The Hawk, who preys on women in the North of England. He sexually assaults the victims before striking them with a hammer and picking out their insides, like a hawk, hence his nickname.
Meanwhile, Annie Marsh (Helen Mirren) is a housewife living in the area of where the killings are taking place, with her husband, Stephen (George Costigan) and their two young children. Stephen is often away on business, but Annie soon notices that he is away whenever the killer strikes. To make matters worse, Annie was once institutionalized due to a mental illness. Is she crazy? Or is her husband a knife-wielding murderer?
