In the course of one night, three women reel from the shock of the sudden death of six-month-old Rosie.

Tara, Rosie's mother, has shut herself in Rosie's bedroom having formally accused her mother-in-law Savita of being responsible for Rosie's death.

Terrified for her future, Savita awaits questioning at the police station, while her daughter Neela paces the corridors outside waiting for news.

Today’s drama is set in the Family Courts where Harry, a sperm donor, is trying to get a court order to allow him to see 'his' daughter. Barrister Rebecca Nyman is representing Beth - the mother - who is now in a lesbian relationship and would prefer Harry to keep his distance.

Harry offered to donate sperm so his lesbian friend and work colleague, Beth, could have a baby. After the birth Harry visited Beth and got to know baby Molly. For a time Beth was happy for Harry to visit but she never intended to have a relationship with him or for him to become involved with Molly as a father. Things went from bad to worse when Beth formed a relationship with Melanie and Harry felt he was completely excluded from seeing Molly. Now a judge has to decide whether Harry should have any contact rights.
