Amy Penrose knows how it feels to grow up in a home where your parents harm you more than raise you.
Now an adult, she’s newly qualified as a child psychologist and hopes to help children who’ve gone through struggles of their own.
When a father brings a twelve-year-old boy into her office, she recognises the bruises and the way the boy withdraws into himself. And she wants to help.
But life is never that simple. With a boyfriend at home who believes her career shouldn’t be more important than getting married and having children, and with a boss who seems to want her to stay late all the time, but not for work reasons, and with other patients who need her, Amy is torn.
As she delves into the family’s past, and starts to feel unsafe in her own home, she starts to wonder if this is one child beyond her help.
