During a cold, British winter, three women reach crisis point.
Emily, an immigrant survivor of the Rwandan genocide, is existing but not living. Vera, a Christian Londoner, is striving to live a moral life, undermined by secrets from her past. Lynn, battling a disease, is consumed by resentment of what she hasn't achieved.
Each suffers her own demons. But as their paths interweave, they begin to unravel their pasts, and change each other's futures.
