Living her own double life at home, this beautiful wife and mother vowed to stop at nothing until she uncovered the truth.

"The Assets" stars Paul Rhys ("Borgia") as Aldrich Ames, Jodie Whittaker ("Venus") as Sandy Grimes, Harriet Walter ("Babel") as Jeanne Vertefeuile, Stuart Milligan ("Jonathan Creek") as Paul Redmond, Julian Ovenden ("Downton Abbey") as Gary Grimes, Christina Cole ("Casino Royale") as Louisa, and Ralph Brown ("Withnail and I") as Lawrence Winston.
