Back To Life follows Miranda 'Miri' Matteson, a woman who committed a terrible crime many years ago. It was a catastrophic mistake, one she paid for with well over a decade in prison.

When we meet her, she has just returned to her family home, aged 36, with no job, no friends and no choice but to move back in with her parents. Miri is desperate to move on, put the past behind her and get back to her life; but, in a small-town where her crime is the most dramatic thing that has ever happened, will anyone let her?
