For Lauren it is a return to the sight of a terrible family tragedy and a house full of ghosts. When she was six years old her mum and little sister were murdered in their home ... and Lauren's dad was put in prison for the crime. Now she is living a stone's throw from her old house, and despite her trepidation, Lauren is curious to know who lives there now, and how the house will make her feel. When she becomes friendly with Nathan, the son of the new owners, she finds herself back at the scene of so many nightmares...of memories, but also of things forgotten. Lauren blocked out a lot of that fateful day, but now that she's older, things are coming back to her...things that could mean her dad is innocent, not guilty of murder. After all these years of hating him Lauren now faces the prospect of loving her dad once again. But is it that easy?

Charlie's brother Brad is always in trouble with the law, but it's minor stuff, usually - just messing about. Charlie blames their mum, for going off and leaving her and Brad and their Dad to fend for themselves. So when Brad is accused of killing a motorist with a well-aimed stone from a motorway bridge, Charlie is suspicious. It's just not Brad's style. When Charlie starts doing some investigating of her own she unearths a bigger, much worse secret, as well as discovering things about her brother, his best mate Denny, and her long-lost mother that turn her world upside down. In trying to prove her brother is not guilty, Charlie has lost her own innocence, for good...

Jaz and Jack have a secret they're hiding from Bobby - they have fallen in love - or so Jaz likes to believe. But this secret fades into insignificance when Jack finds a bag full of money abandoned in a house near to his. The house had been raided by the local mafia, and someone had stupidly left behind the loot. It's a massive amount of money and Jack takes it without thinking about the consequences. All he knows is that this money means freedom, it means a life beyond the estate. He is sure Jaz and Bobby will feel that, too. But someone else is after the money and Jack is in big trouble. Frightened, he convinces Jaz to hide it in her grandma's attic - they can take it bit by bit ... But Jaz is uneasy, not only with hoarding the illegal booty, but also with Jack's new attitude to her - all of a sudden he is blowing hot and cold ... has Jack got a secret of his own? Jaz doesn't know who to trust, all she knows is that she feels like the net is closing and she wishes she'd never heard of the money...
