Faith is visited by her late Aunt Geraldine after more verbal abuse from her boyfriend, Darren. Geraldine says she needs a friend in deed to confide in, so Faith talks to her colleague, Jenny, who suggests she takes self-defence lessons with their other colleague, Ben. As Ben teaches Faith, they fall in love. She begins to come out of her shell and grabs life with enthusiasm again. Being a victim of abuse, Faith decides she wants girls to not become like her, and to be a counsellor. She reads an article in her newspaper about criminals facing their victims, and believes this is a good way for her counselling plan to work. Her first session, taken by Jenny, with two pupils she knows, goes very well; the bully approaches her after the chat for more help. Ben and Jenny encourage her. With her new determination, Faith finally stands up to Darren, with a little help from Ben. She realises he is a 'Friend in deed' to her 'friend in need'.
