Lily, a widow, is in hospital suffering from a number of psychological illnesses including dementia. Her daughter Debra has been caring for Lily for the last twenty years. Out of the blue Lily is visited by her other daughter, Megan, whom no-one has seen for twenty years. Why has she suddenly appeared? Where has Megan been for all these years? What is really been going on? And will Dr Pritchard fall for Debra’s advances?

All is explained through this thought-provoking, hard-hitting drama as the horrifying secrets of a family’s past are revealed.

The action takes place one summer a few years ago in a small cotage hospital in rural England.
