Eventually, Tanya found herself visiting Tom’s home, only to become his captive and suffer from his abuse for an entire decade; shockingly, Tom allowed her to take on a part-time job.

This is because he believes he has completely brainwashed her, certain that she will always stay by his side-however, reality proves otherwise.

Once away from Tom’s controlling gaze, Tanya gathers the strength to bravely move towards liberation.
