"Miri wakes up in a police cell once again – this time charged with arson. Although a mystery alibi quickly clears her name, the community will take a little longer to accept her innocence. After he secures her release, Miri agrees to meet the mysterious Scandinavian man who’s been following her since her return. He claims to know why Lara was so angry with Miri on the night that she died. His conclusion is far-fetched – but is it as far from the truth as it might first seem? Disappointed, Miri returns home to find that the vandals have struck again. It may be Oscar’s birthday, but the Mattesons aren’t going to get a break... To make matters worse, Billy is now a target too. Hurt and angry, Miri is still determined to move on and be judged for the person she is now, not for the terrible thing she did many years ago. Things come to a head as Miri confronts the community at a meeting held to run her out of town. As the meeting erupts in to turmoil, secrets and lies are laid bare, and it turns out that Miri isn’t the only one with a dark past."

"Miri sets about mending her friendship with Billy, after his terrible reaction to the truth of who she really is. She seems to have made progress until an encounter with his wife Anna takes a dark turn – and Miri winds up under the scrutiny of the local police. Meanwhile, having ended her relationship with Dom, Caroline is determined to relight the fire between her and Oscar. Unfortunately, no matter what she does and how hard he concentrates, Oscar’s body won’t respond to the attention. Could it have something to do with his inability to be honest with Caroline about her betrayal? Across town, Miri heads back to work at Nathan’s Fish & Chip shop, only to find that the shop is no more. Nathan is now running a food truck and despite the positive spin he puts on it, it’s clear that hiring Miri was a terrible idea. Mandy is still trying to connect with Miri, who refuses to give her a second chance. But, by the end of the day Miri is running out of friends and allies - perhaps she will be forced to reconsider."

Stranded in the middle of nowhere, Caroline is finally forced to admit her true feelings towards her daughter. The tense situation isn’t helped by the fact that Caroline has left her mobile phone at home and cannot call for help.

His only distraction is the mysterious Scandinavian man from the power company who’s arrived to check the meter..

"Miri is doing her best to integrate back into life in her small home town, having spent the past 18 years in prison. But with the graffiti still fading on the fence outside and a rather unsavoury parcel in the morning post, the community are making it very clear that she is not welcome. Miri is undeterred as she prepares for her first day of work at Nathan’s fish and chip shop, intent on making a success of her fresh start. But how will the locals react to her new role at the already unpopular shop? Meanwhile, Miri’s childhood best friend Mandy is eager to rebuild their old friendship, but it will be harder than she thinks to win back Miri, who is hurt by how her ex-best friend acted in the aftermath of that terrible night all those years ago. Despite her best efforts, Miri struggles to adjust to her new job, and her socially awkward boss Nathan is clearly unnerved by her past. On top of that, her increasingly persistent ex-boyfriend Dom is evidently incapable of having a platonic relationship, and the not-so-passive aggression between her parents builds. Perhaps Miri needs a friend more than she realises. Her next-door neighbour Billy offers a glimmer of hope. However, his attempts to kindle a friendship bring back unwelcome memories for Miri."

"Meet Miri Matteson, she’s just arrived back in her home town - a place she no longer recognises - in the dysfunctional family home she involuntarily vacated as a teenager, living with the parents she can no longer hold a conversation with. Just released from prison after eighteen years and trying to nudge her way back into society, Miri is the ultimate Adult Beginner - a funny, endearing, awkward woman determined to move on from her violent past. But life post-prison is not proving easy. Her Tamagotchi has gone the same way as her idols George Michael, Bowie and Prince, her parents Caroline and Oscar are presenting a happy and united front despite the cracks beginning to show, and Miri's attempt to reconnect with her teenage sweetheart Dom opens up a whole new can of worms. If only she could land a job, that could be the ticket to a new life - but with no money and no driver’s licence Miri is forced to seek work in the small town that remembers her only for what she did all those years ago. To top things off there’s chemistry bubbling between Miri and her new neighbour Billy. Can she keep her past hidden from him? And who is this stranger in town who seems to be stalking Miri’s every move? With the terrible truth of what happened all those years ago constantly threatening to surface, Miri’s struggle to move on becomes ever more desperate – but in a small town where her crime was the biggest headline of the decade, will anyone ever let her?"
