The story continues for three lifelong friends. Ruth has to deal with Alice, who is in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease, and Mandy, whose mother has MS, battles with the prejudices that people have against the disabled. But taking centre stage, even though she has no idea, is Rachel, who is haunted by her childhood memories. In the evening, after the 10 o'clock news, she begins her nightly ritual. But much more sinister events are about to eclipse the everyday trials and tribulations of these friends... life throws a spanner into the works.
