A tragic death. A missing baby. A long-kept secret... 1960. Thirteen-year-old Rebecca and her mother live in fear of Rebecca's father's violent temper. As a storm batters Seaview Cottage one night, Rebecca hears a visitor at the door and an argument ensues. By the time the police arrive, the visitor has fled and both Rebecca's parents are dead. No one believes Rebecca's story that she heard a stranger downstairs... 2014. Iris, a journalist, is sent to cover the story of a new mother on the run with her desperately ill baby, as the police race against time to find them. When the trail leads back to Seaview Cottage, the childhood home of Iris's own mother, Rebecca, Iris must unravel the events of the night Rebecca is desperate to forget for Seaview Cottage to give up its secrets.
