Ellie Tyler dreams of a life beyond that of her drunken, tyrannical father and the dangerous East London gangland. Her only refuge is in her artistic talents, which she hopes will one day help her escape.

But having suffered the unimaginable, will Ellie find happiness again or will the "threads of silk" forever bind her to her past?
