Storyline

Shirley Adams spends her days caring for her disabled son, Donovan - he was shot in the back of the neck on his way home from school one afternoon over a year ago. Since then the Adams family has lost all their worldly possessions to medical bills. Shirley has no money, no job and no husband - he left without a trace months ago. Shirley's life now consists of trying to make ends meet by shoplifting and relying on the charity of others. When a young, eager occupational therapist, Tamsin Ranger, comes into their lives, Shirley hopes that it might lift her son's spirits and finally put them on the path to some form of stability. At the same time Shirley receives a phone call one afternoon informing her that Donovan's case is finally going to trial, but the glory is short lived when Shirley discovers that the shooter is one of Donovan's childhood friends. Her reaction to the betrayal is so overwhelming that she chooses not to tell Donovan in fear of further damaging his already unstable ... Written by Oliver Hermanus
