Sam has never known real family and has been drifting for a while. Sally has always regretted giving her son away, although at the time she saw no other option. In each other, they both find comfort, joy, heart break and support, like they've never experienced before. But, like in a Greek Tragedy, can Sally escape her guilty mind?
