Ella, Bess and Nessa grew up on a tough council estate in the north of England. All three have very different lives but all have endured the trials and tribulations of being cold, going hungry, borrowing from the 'loan-man' and begging neighbours for coins for the electricity meter or else huddle in the dark. They may have grown into fine women but where they come from will always be a part of who they are. Good girls who have shared hard times can have a life-long bond that's impossible to break. You hit one, you hit them all. When a violent attack brings them together in a way they could not have foreseen, how far would they go? Would they stand together? Would they kill for one another? Would they prove to be not so innocent?
