What begins with a subtle threat swiftly turns into a nightmare as the police, social services and even Jo’s own husband turn against her.
Jo is convinced it’s all a misunderstanding and she trusts social services and the medical professions she’s dealing with to do their job. But when they start to threaten to take Elise away, considering Jo to be an unfit mother, she sees no other way to keep her child safe. RUN.
