Charlotte is pregnant and just wanted to leave the English countryside with her boyfriend Ben and fulfill the dream of a new start in Australia. Unfortunately, this will not be possible. Charlotte finds herself in the clutches of Ben’s mother, Margaret (Fiona Shaw, from Harry Potter and Killing Eve), and her stepson, who promise to look after her until their baby is born — an heir to the property where they live. But what will happen next?
