Adam and Rosie's happiness is almost tangible, a fact which is very much resented by Rosie's stepbrother, Greg Phillips. He envies them to the point of madness and schemes to get his hands on their money. Fuelled by drug addiction, he is prepared to kill to get what he wants, and he does. His devious plot results in Adam being locked up for Greg's crimes. Rosie befriends a young girl, Cindy, who is in trouble and who may be the only person who can identify the real killer. Discovering this, Greg takes to stalking Cindy and injures her little boy. When he turns up at Rosie's isolated home, drugged to the eyeballs, she keeps up the pretence of not knowing he is the killer but in the end he abducts her and forces her to face her worst demons.
