Strange, thwarted Poppy, newly released from prison after serving a sentence for the teenage murder of an exploitative, abusive teacher, starts fluttering around the life of her co-accused, Serena.
But neither of them can flee from their pasts, as this straightforward psychological thriller unwinds. We still don’t know the truth of what happened in that sunny seaside town all of those years ago. Frankly, it’s really hard to care about anyone as they seem a useless bunch who are incapable of doing anything to pull themselves from the mire.
Poppy (Jodhi May) doesn’t help her cause by making a nuisance of herself, while Serena (Lorraine Burroughs) is too easily buffeted by the fates. Get a grip, the lot of you.
With Poppy seeking revenge, Serena struggles to block out the memories from her past. As her mother's health deteriorates, she realises she must face the burden on her own, and resolves to report her former school friend to the probation services. Excluded and alone, Poppy remains determined to get the truth from Serena, and confides in lifeguard Al. Drama based on the novel by Dorothy Koomson, starring Lorraine Burroughs, Jodhi May, Martin Compston and Dona Croll.
