London, 1988. Simone Burbeck's life appears perfect. She lives in a mansion in London with her perfect husband and children, and her life is a merry-go-round of expensive renovations, dinner parties and school fundraisers. There's just one problem: it's all lies.
When her husband has a fatal heart attack in a disastrous session with a prostitute, the true state of their finances is revealed. Simone is broke, homeless and a social outcast. With no other options and two children to care for, she is forced to return to her family home in Newcastle, Australia. It turns out Simone's past isn't quite the story that she told everyone in London. Nothing about Simone is what it appears to be. Oh, and her real name is Sammy.
Sammy plans to cool her heels in Newcastle while she figures out a strategy to get back to London. However, the life and the people she ran away from over 20 years ago slowly pull her back in. Sammy thought she could simply shut the door on her past. But her past is about to bash that door down.
