A young woman escapes abandonment, poverty, and crime—but making it in the music world can’t protect her from her past, in this intoxicating thriller. It’s 1984 and sixteen-year-old Catherine Day’s mother has deserted her in their Glasgow home. Alone and desperate for money, Catherine is soon ensnared by local criminals. But that’s not the life she wants for herself. So she joins a band. Catherine battles hard to succeed—and is aided by a mysterious guardian angel: a man who has connections to her mother and knows things about her family that could change her life forever. But as her star gradually begins to rise and her world feels more secure, a horrifying event reveals she can’t escape her origins that easily, and what matters most is survival.
