Storyline

Sam's greatest shock yet is to see his father Vic Tyler, who disappeared at his birthday party 'tomorrow' when he becomes four, arrested for collecting the ransom money demanded by infamously violent Italian brothers for the baby of Karl and Janice Kreshpane. Sam believes Vic's story he ignored what he was collecting and just paid off gambling debts, and gets him released provided he wears a wire when delivering the cash. That goes bloodily wrong, but the baby is found. Sam stays to protect his mother and his toddler self, but as the party in the park approaches, so does a grim truth. Written by KGF Vissers
