Lotta Rae is a working-class fiften-year-old who is viciously raped by a wealthy gentleman. Lotta's family believe in justice and so Lotta makes the brave decision to testify in court against her attacker. The community supports her, or so it seems.

William Lindon is a barrister about to lose everything. He can't live up to his father's formidable reputation and if he fails one more case, how will he house, clothe and feed his wife and young son?

Both Lotta and William have decisions to make that will change the course of their lives and the lives of everyone around them for generations to come.
