Single mother Sandra (Clare Dunne) escapes her abusive husband with her two young children, only to find herself trapped in temporary accommodation. After months of struggling, she hits upon the idea of self-building an affordable home. She finds an architect who provides her with plans and is offered land by Peggy, a woman she cleans for. But as her past rears its head in the form of Gary (Ian Lloyd Anderson), her possessive ex, and as bureaucrats fight back against her independent spirit, will Sandra be able to rebuild her life?
