17 year old Emma lives alone with her father, Chris, following her mother’s abandonment of the family 10 years ago – a mother who hasn’t been in contact at all since that day. But Emma starts to get suspicious that perhaps her mother didn’t just run away and persuades the police to re-open their missing person’s file.
