On an overgrown farmstead, a troubled man called Charlie Shepherd raises a four-year-old boy, Tommy, by himself. But when Charlie's wife, Angela, returns, fragile but very much alive, we realise all is not as it seems. Charlie and Angela lost their real son several months ago - Tommy has been stolen. Angela's horrified, but when Charlie explains why Tommy's real parents don't deserve him, she joins Charlie in creating a loving family for Tommy. Life returns to this once happy home. But the lie this family is based on won't go away, and in the world outside the farm, an unrelenting manhunt for Tommy's abductors is closing in..
