Maddy and Rory are devoted parents to 3-year-old Joshua, committed to keeping him happy and safe.
But when an everyday visit to a supermarket cafe turns into a far more troubling incident, their trust even in those closest to them is shattered. Fear and doubt consume them, until they reach a savage breaking point.
Gut is a taut psychological thriller that explores who we can trust with our children. And whether it's more dangerous not to trust at all.
