Yasmiin cannot comprehend what the policeman is saying to her. Her friend in a coma? Attempted suicide? Discovering shes listed as next of kin, Yasmiin looks to her friends past to try and understand her actions, uncovering fresh mysteries at every turn. All the while, her own life seems to be running off course Kemi seems to have it all: a high-powered job, a beautiful flat, a loving boyfriend. So why doesn't she feel more settled? Unsure whether its homesickness, heartsickness or sick-and-tired-of-the-same-old-sickness, she embarks on a destructive path to try and change things up Brittany-Rae doesnt remember the woman she was before she met her husband Jonny. She knows she was an ambitious, confident go-getter, but now shes faded into Jonnys domineering shadow. And as she unearths disturbing secrets about her husband, shes focused on only one thing: her daughter, Maya, and ensuring she is as far away from Jonny as possible The three womens lives begin to overlap in the most unexpected of circumstances. Is it possible that the answer to their problems though it seems impossible lie in one anothers hands?
