While Kate enjoyed the freedoms of youth, Georgie remained at home. But now Georgie is grown up, it's time she started exploring. Love can tear us apart. Their mother Jan loves her daughters with all her heart. So what if she kept them out of sight when they were young? She just cared for them so much. She wanted to protect them. What if your life was based on a lie? Maybe there was another reason for Jan's protective behaviour? If they ventured too far afield, it might destroy the facade of their childhood. This family's about to discover that while lies can cause pain, the truth could destroy them all."@en ;
