However, dependable Karen is at breaking point; forced to work through Christmas to pay off her husbands debts and help keep the bailiffs at bay. It is the coming together of these old school friends that ignites a yearning for something more. Their former hopes and dreams are remembered and a wish to change their lives for the better. They realise that being with each other means that theyre not on their own and that they will always have a lifelong family together.
