In 2015 the small Cumbrian town of Keswick is rocked by a scandal that rocked in 2015 involving schoolteacher, Sally Wright, who is alleged to be having an affair with her 16-year-old pupil, Matty Taylor.
When Matty is found dead, brutally stabbed with a broken cider bottle, suspicion falls upon Sally who had admitted to taking special interest in the boy.
In spite of having no criminal record, no history of violence and vehemently protesting her innocence and the fact she couldn’t be placed at the remote beauty spot on the day Matty was found murdered, Sally was convicted by a majority verdict and sentenced to a minimum of 15 years in jail…
When the verdict is overturned, Sally returns to the village following her release – only to find that she’s lost everything.
