From the novel "Crime Story" by Maurice Gee comes a revealing, emotional drama which illustrates the traits that push us apart and pull us together as families. Leeanne Rosser (Kate Elliott) is a 20-year-old solo mother who has been rejected by her Christian fundamentalist mother (Miranda Harcourt). She gets no help from her family but is close to her brother Brent (Jared Turner), unaware of his covert career in house burglaries. Ulla (Jennifer Ward Lealand), with a 15-year-old daughter Olivia (Alicia Fulford-Wierzbicki) and an estranged husband Athol (Michael Hurst), becomes victim to one of Brent's robberies after catching him in the act, and ends up paralysed after he panics and she is sent plummeting down the steps. From that moment on, the two familes are sucked into a crisis that will amplify and reveal many truths of the heart.
