Little Jamey, 2½ years old, is placed with experienced foster carer, Cathy Glass, as an emergency.
The police and social services have no choice but to remove two-year-old Jamey from home after his mother leaves him alone all night to go out partying.
When he first arrives with foster carer Cathy Glass, he is scared, hungry and withdrawn, craving the affection he has been denied for so long. He is small for his age and unsteady on his feet – a result of being left for long periods in his cot.
Cathy and her family find Jamey very easy to love, but as he settles in and makes progress, a new threat emerges. Coronavirus and lockdown change everything.
