Sarah, career woman and perfectionist homemaker, struggles to keep up with the Joneses. As her husband grows distant, she has no support network. Emma, a down-to-earth nurse and busy mother of three, always dreamed of having a sister ... Nothing prepares her for the shock results of a routine blood test. Adam, a successful florist, was raised by his mother. As his dreams start to fall into place, he can't stop thinking about the father he never had. Finally, Michelle is trying to build cake-making into a career. But at 46, has she left her run too late to fall in love, have children and find her birth parents? These five very different people - all connected but separated by secrets from the past - could be facing their futures together. After all, friends will come and go but sisters and brothers are forever."@en ;
