Further info:-

When Alice moves into the property it's fairly obvious that the young landlord fancies her.

She quickly befriends him and we feel for her safety the minute she arrives.

Her actions seem to over-step the boundary of safe behaviour and when she tells the landlord she knows he's not the real owner - he confesses to the secret fraud.

But where is the real owner? Then a letter of inheritance arrives for the real owner and the tenant and the landlord undertake a heist.

But Alice is hiding a bigger secret.

She's on a quest for revenge.
