Sam has been on the road for almost a year, as far from her American hometown as possible. Travelling through the UK, she meets up with Chris and Mara, a young couple who have relocated to a sleepy seaside town to try and get their lives together. Suffering financial strain and indeterminate career prospects, they welcome Sam into their lives; she serves as a reminder of the carefree spirits they used to be. Together they form a unit; a family of their own, until a series of events cause Sam to reveal who she really is, and what she’s been running from all this time.
