Lucy lives a normal life in a normal street. Was she a fool or an angel to want to run away?

Lucy Lovejoy married her childhood sweetheart at 16, but since then she's lost a little more of herself with each passing year. Those looking from the outside think she's like any other wife and mother, but there is no warmth or love at the centre of Lucy's family - her children have watched their father belittle her for years and are, much to her sadness, following in his footsteps.

With her 40th birthday approaching, Lucy discovers that her good-for-nothing husband is having an affair with her sister, a double-betrayal for Lucy, and it shatters her.

Sitting on a bench one day - she looks back at her life, and feels like she's done nothing with it. So, mustering up all of her courage she decides to leave her family and the home she's devoted so many years to, she decides to go out into the world and start a new life.

What will Lucy discover?
