"Angel Street" is a psychological thriller set in Victorian London. It revolves around Jack and Bella Manningham, a recently married, and otherwise seemingly ordinary couple living on Angel Street. However, beneath the surface, Jack, is manipulating and tormenting his wife into believing she is losing her sanity.
