Desperate to find her boy, she's completely unprepared for how quickly her personal hell is thrust into the media spotlight. She let Ben out of her sight, and now he's gone - so of course the nation thinks she is to blame. But what really happened that afternoon? Caught between the tragedy of losing her son, a frenetic police investigation and a public who have turned against her, Rachel must now face the awful truth - that everything she knew about herself and the people around her is a lie. And there is nobody left, not even her family, who she can trust. In this emotional and wholeheartedly captivating psychological thriller, we see how a mother's single mistake can cause nationwide fury. The clock is ticking to find Ben alive. But this is a trial by public opinion. Whose side are you on?."@en ;
