dark and threatening thriller. Susan and David Sinnet, both in their
early 40`s, are experiencing difficulties in their relationship
and cracks are beginning to show. Some years earlier they had acted
as foster parents for a Local Authority. Sally, now 23 years and
fostered as a teenager by the Sinnets for a period of some 4 years,
appears out of the blue and is welcomed by Susan with open arms.
What is not immediately apparent, but becomes so subsequently, is
that Sally, now calling herself Rhianan, is a troubled and vengeful
girl driven by a desire to seek retribution. She carries dark secrets,
which she unfolds for a terrified Susan. The plot thickens as physical
violence enters the arena but is Rhianan seeking the ultimate retribution
or is there another explanation for her actions and, perhaps more
importantly, where will it all end?
