A Good Father
When I hit her, which isn't often, I am careful not to go too deep around her cheekbones because her cheekbones are a great feature of hers.
Des is a good husband, a good father - a good man.
He encourages his wife's artistic endeavours. He holds down a well-paid, if unfulfilling, job. He is manager of his sons' Under-11s football team. He reads bedtime stories to his children every night.
But appearances can be deceptive, and behind closed doors secrets threaten to ruin everything. Des is afraid. He is afraid of the world encroaching on his family. Afraid of past mistakes catching up on him. Afraid of losing control. Des is master of his home, and he must maintain his authority over it - and everyone in it - at all costs.
