Neighbours’ Gary Canning finds himself on the wrong side of the law yet again next week when he is forced to steal in order to pay daughter Xanthe’s university fees as he promised.
With the deadline to deliver the dosh looming in just three day’s time, on Tuesday 25 September Gary begins to panic his little girl’s dreams of studying medicine will be shattered – and it will be all his fault.

But when he also taps up the bank for a loan he’s told the process could take weeks, so he’s forced to turn to the only other source of income available…
