Eleven days in the life of a mother as she tries to navigate herself and her family through the aftershocks of a scandal.

Six years ago, aged fifteen, Rosalind's daughter Stephanie ran away with teacher Nathan Temperley, triggering a media frenzy and resulting in Temperley's arrest and imprisonment. Although the family - Rosalind, her husband Dan, Stephanie and son Freddy - don't talk about what happened, their lives have been shaped by it and everything that came after.

When Rosalind discovers that Temperley is about to be released from prison, she's forced to re-examine the events of six years ago.
