The body of teenager Mia Hinkin is discovered six weeks after her disappearance from the remote farmhouse where she lived with her stern parents Mal and Nell. She was last seen at a music festival where she was perceived arguing with an older man, possibly stable owner Gary Tovey, for whom she occasionally worked. Eastern European migrant pickers from an adjacent farm are also in the frame, but everybody in the area agrees that she was desperate to leave her unhappy home. Vera suspects that somebody she met at the festival was helping her to escape to a happier urban existence and holds the clue to her death, but she cannot dismiss the many neighbouring friends and ex-lover who were keen to help her move away from her miserable rural life, even the younger brother with whom she shared her confidences.
