NICOLA KING concocts a strange plan to help her cope with her attack and accident, feigning step son Carl’s illness for attention.
Things could be seriously unravelling for Nicola after she was brutally attacked in the street by a group of girls.

Nicola is clearly not in her right mind, as she makes out her step son is feeling really ill and can’t go to school.
It seems seven year old Carl Holliday has become a safety net for Nicola, as she desperately needs company amid her debilitating panic attacks.
The little boy starts to become confused as to why they are lying about his illness, and runs out the house when her back is turned, stealing her phone.
What will the frightened youngster do with her phone? Will he call his mother and leave the Dales?
