With both social services and her daughter's paternal grandmother (Brenda Blethyn) threatening to assume guardianship of her child, single teen mom Leigh-Anne (Stephanie James) becomes increasingly paranoid under the constant pressure. But Leigh-Anne's environment -- one of crime and poverty -- is no place to raise a child, nor does she have the legitimate means to do so. When she fears that her neighbor (Oliver Haden) is talking to social services, her destructive behavior only increases.
