Synopsis

Fifteen-year-old Billie has lived with her dad in their little flat for as long as she can remember, but all that's about to change. She's got big plans – get Dad a job, sort out her grades, and live in a house with five bathrooms. But one reckless night threatens to undo all her hard work and derail her ambitions… When it’s always been the two of you, how easy is it to get out, or to let anyone else in? What happens when those you should depend on need you more than you need them.
