When fate brings two strangers to the house - Michael, a petty thief, and Steph, a pregnant girl on the run from her abusive boyfriend - Jean discovers the family she has always wanted.
Inevitably the past starts catching up with them, threatening to destroy the delusional yet idyllic, isolated life they have created. Discovery looms.
