Five years ago, teacher Sally Wright (Katherine Kelly, Liar, Mr. Selfridge) was convicted of murder. And although it was never proven, she was also accused of having a sexual relationship with one of her 16-year-old students: gifted and talented Matty Taylor. Overnight her life imploded; she lost her freedom, her job as a teacher and her husband, Sam, (Jamie Bamber, Marcella, Battlestar Galactica), who filed for divorce and is now engaged to a new woman, Karen (Priyanga Burford, Avenue 5). But now, Sally is finally free – her guilty verdict overturned in the face of incontrovertible evidence. She is determined to recover everything she lost, and prove, without a doubt, her innocence.
