Meet Ola, who has just received her A-level results: great news! Until she gets home to find her mum in a difficult situation…

Smart, outgoing and popular, Ola is desperately trying to keep a secret from her friends.

At the start of the school year she meets a new transfer student, Sai. As Ola and Sai get to know each other their connection begins to grow, that is, until Ola’s secrets start to catch up to her.
