Struggling to come to terms with the suicide of her teenage son, Ellie lives in the shadows of the Forth Road Bridge, lingering on its footpaths and swimming in the waters below. One day she talks down another suicidal teenager, Sam, and sees for herself a shot at redemption, the chance to atone for her son's death. But even with the best intentions, she can't foresee the situation she's falling headlong into - a troubled family, with some very dark secrets of their own.

A realist view of the breakdown of a family after a suicide, combined with the unlikely story of a murder and cover-up. One can almost believe that in some cases, murder can resolve awful situations with no other solution that doesn't leave multiple mentally broken victims in the end. Complex, but, if you have been down in the depths, you know it is plausible.
