'Lexie and her husband, Marty, have moved to Merrigang, a small village on the edge of Canberra, with their three-year-old daughter, Bella, to create a new life after a horrific 'trial by media' in Sydney. While the relationship between husband and wife is still strained, they have each made tentative friends and are beginning to feel safe in their new home, living under a new surname.
'One Thursday morning, Lexie and Bella are at Merrigang playgroup, a haven of safety for Lexie. Lexie leaves Bella in the care of five playgroup mums while she walks to the nearby shop for biscuits. Six minutes later, Bella is gone. As appeals are made for her safe return, hate messages appear on a website targeting Lexie and Marty, with social media trolls in full force. Police start to dig up the past and as members of Lexie and Marty's newly created group of friends implode with doubt, suspicion lands on Lexie and Marty themselves. Where is Bella and who is determined to destroy Lexie and Marty's lives?'
