-Thom, turn that off now.

-Mum, will you tell her?

0:01:190:01:22

Please, Lily, don't wind Ruth up.

0:01:220:01:24

Get inside. Please, come on.

0:01:240:01:26

Thom! Just concentrate for once, would you?

0:01:260:01:31

Seriously, Sarah and I have both...

0:01:520:01:54

Mum, will you tell her?

0:01:540:01:56

Look, come on, look at this.

0:01:560:01:58

It's all right, I'll go.

0:02:090:02:11

-Hi, I'm Liz.

-Hi, Liz, come in, come in.

0:02:170:02:20

We've just got the bubbly open.

0:02:200:02:22

Good timing! She's just having a nap.

0:02:220:02:25

Come in. Guys?

0:02:250:02:27

-Oh, hi, Liz.

-Hi, hi.

0:02:270:02:30

-This is my sister, Sarah.

-Good to see you.

0:02:300:02:32

-Hi.

-This is Pete.

0:02:320:02:35

Thom, turn if off now!

0:02:350:02:37

Can we just have a word in private or something?

0:02:390:02:42

Is that... No, no, it's OK.

0:02:420:02:44

Can we just go to another room or something if that's all right?

0:02:440:02:47

What's happened?

0:02:480:02:51

She's changed her mind.

0:02:530:02:55

The birth mother. She wants her back.

0:02:560:02:58

The panel were so impressed with you,

0:03:190:03:22

I mean they really were and this doesn't change that.

0:03:220:03:26

Look, if her circumstances were the same, then...

0:03:260:03:28

It'll have to be assessed. I mean, nothing will happen straight away.

0:03:300:03:34

It'll take a few... a few weeks.

0:03:340:03:37

It's just unfortunate that they didn't get in contact until today,

0:03:540:03:59

until after the panel, you know, when everything just seemed so...

0:03:590:04:03

That's why I wanted to come round

0:04:030:04:05

before you started.

0:04:050:04:06

-"Unfortunate"?

-Sarah?

0:04:060:04:08

You think what you're saying is "unfortunate" for them?

0:04:080:04:11

-I don't think they should...

-To have had their baby asleep up there?

0:04:110:04:15

What chance will she have with her?

0:04:150:04:18

She's not a mother, she's a girl!

0:04:180:04:21

What sort of parents does she have that let it happen

0:04:210:04:24

in the first place? What sort of people are they?

0:04:240:04:26

-I think we all just need to...

-Oh, I know you're not meant to say these things, but I don't care!

0:04:260:04:31

The only decent thing that girl ever did in her whole life

0:04:310:04:35

was give her up in the first place.

0:04:350:04:38

You tell me it's unfortunate for them?

0:04:380:04:41

Not as unfortunate as it is for Grace.

0:04:410:04:45

No-one will take Grace away, will they?

0:04:450:04:47

BABY CRIES

0:05:360:05:39

# Hush, little baby don't you cry. #

0:06:050:06:14

You all right?

0:06:260:06:27

Anthony. You all right?

0:06:310:06:33

I'm coming, mate.

0:06:330:06:35

What I love about it over there is that they're not just clean,

0:06:450:06:48

they're obsessively clean.

0:06:480:06:50

Puts this country to shame.

0:06:500:06:53

Lift up your glass to have a drink and before you've put it down again, they've polished the table.

0:06:530:06:58

It's incredible, it really is.

0:06:580:06:59

Listen, Sarah, I can't stay. I told Ian I'd open up.

0:06:590:07:02

I'm sure you can spare a few minutes.

0:07:020:07:04

No, I can't. I really can't.

0:07:040:07:07

Mary Ann, spending every evening with a bunch of...

0:07:070:07:10

Did you want me to come round for a reason, or...?

0:07:100:07:12

-DOOR SLAMS SHUT

-Does it always have to be slammed?

0:07:120:07:16

-Look, I have to go.

-You don't call.

0:07:180:07:20

You don't invite us over.

0:07:200:07:22

You don't come here. You don't go anywhere other than that club.

0:07:220:07:26

Well, if being busy is a crime...

0:07:260:07:29

I'm your sister and I don't like seeing you like this.

0:07:290:07:32

It's been months.

0:07:320:07:34

It really isn't any of your business.

0:07:340:07:37

You and Anthony were wonderful foster parents, you really were.

0:07:370:07:41

You might not want to try for adoption again, of course not,

0:07:410:07:45

but you can't give up completely.

0:07:450:07:48

Do you think that we could go through any of that again?

0:07:480:07:51

Mary Ann, there are children out there...

0:07:510:07:54

I've got children! Dozens of them!

0:07:540:07:57

They're my children now.

0:07:570:08:00

I'm only having one tonight.

0:08:190:08:21

Oh right, yeah. OK, boss.

0:08:210:08:23

-I'm serious, mate.

-Oh, I know you are.

0:08:230:08:25

I know you are, chief. Didn't doubt you for a second.

0:08:250:08:28

Hey, here she is! About time.

0:08:450:08:47

THEY CHEER

0:08:470:08:50

We've been waiting here for ages!

0:08:500:08:52

-Have you seen Gemma?

-No.

0:08:580:09:00

You don't have to put your hand up to talk to me, Mizzy.

0:09:000:09:02

-Well, I seen her, Mary Ann, I did.

-You seen Gemma?

-No, she never.

0:09:020:09:06

Yeah, I seen her, honest.

0:09:060:09:08

Do you know why's she not been coming to the club?

0:09:080:09:11

Love those shoes. I want some like that, but in pink. Can you get them in pink? I can pay you back.

0:09:110:09:16

When you get them for me,

0:09:160:09:17

I can pay you back a bit every week like they do in the catalogues.

0:09:170:09:20

How much do you want a week then, Mary Ann?

0:09:200:09:23

SNOOKER CUE FALLS

0:09:230:09:24

THE BOYS SHOUT

0:09:240:09:26

-Get back, step back.

-Digs, Digs, just step back.

0:09:290:09:32

Right well, that's us done then, isn't it, eh?

0:09:320:09:36

With there being a one-pint-and-out rule and all that.

0:09:360:09:39

Same again, please love.

0:09:420:09:43

-Night, girls.

-Good night.

0:09:460:09:48

You can go if you like. I'll lock up.

0:09:490:09:51

-Sure?

-Yeah.

0:09:510:09:54

-You haven't heard anything about Gemma, have you?

-In what way?

0:09:540:09:57

It's just she hasn't been for ages.

0:09:570:10:00

And, you know, I spent so much time with her.

0:10:000:10:02

Tried to show her that boys weren't the only reason to come.

0:10:020:10:05

That she had potential.

0:10:070:10:09

I thought I was making progress.

0:10:090:10:10

Mary Ann, we've enough on our plate dealing

0:10:100:10:13

with those that turn up without worrying about those that don't.

0:10:130:10:16

-See you.

-Bye.

0:10:160:10:18

See, I will not forget you.

0:11:070:11:10

I have carved you in the palm of my hand.

0:11:110:11:15

GLASS SHATTERS

0:11:190:11:22

ALARM SIREN WAILS

0:11:220:11:24

Hello?

0:11:410:11:43

Hello?

0:11:430:11:45

Gemma!

0:11:450:11:46

Gemma, it's me, Mary Ann!

0:11:460:11:50

BABY GURGLES

0:11:570:11:59

-Blokes, mind you.

-Yeah?

-And they'll say it with their left hand.

0:12:450:12:50

MOBILE PHONE RINGS

0:12:500:12:52

-What, and they, and they just do that?

-Yeah.

0:12:530:12:56

Hi, Ian, it's Mary Ann here.

0:13:030:13:07

I just need to know where Gemma Gooch lives.

0:13:070:13:10

Erm... and I know what you said, and it's not about that,

0:13:100:13:14

it's just I really need her address. Please.

0:13:140:13:18

Hiya. I'm sorry to bother you, but are you Gemma's mum?

0:13:420:13:47

Yeah.

0:13:470:13:49

I'm Mary Ann Walsh.

0:13:490:13:50

I run the youth club up at St Pat's.

0:13:500:13:53

Gemma comes. Well, she used to come.

0:13:530:13:55

I need to speak to her. Is she in?

0:13:550:13:57

-Is she in trouble?

-No, no, I think

0:13:570:13:59

she might need to see a doctor.

0:14:010:14:03

-A doctor?

-Well, it's just a possibility.

0:14:030:14:06

She looked all right a couple of minutes ago when I saw her.

0:14:060:14:08

-She's here?

-She was.

-Well, do you know what time she'll be back?

0:14:080:14:12

Knowing her, in't middle of the bloody night.

0:14:120:14:14

-She's at her boyfriend's.

-Do you know where he lives?

0:14:140:14:17

-What's his name?

-What has she done?

0:14:170:14:19

Nothing.

0:14:190:14:21

Nothing. She hasn't done anything.

0:14:210:14:24

Please, tell her... tell her not to worry.

0:14:240:14:26

Tell her everything will be all right.

0:14:260:14:28

I'll come back in the morning.

0:14:280:14:30

BABY CRIES

0:14:560:14:58

Oh, brave girl!

0:15:170:15:20

Brave little girl!

0:15:210:15:25

Listen. Listen, it's OK.

0:16:220:16:24

I... I was driving back from the club, and I heard this...

0:16:240:16:28

And she's there in the back seat, and she had this note with her.

0:16:280:16:33

This is a joke. You're joking, right?

0:16:330:16:35

-And I saw Gemma Gooch hiding behind a car, and then she ran away.

-You went to her house?

0:16:350:16:40

Yes. Yes, I saw her mum, and she said that she wouldn't be back until the

0:16:400:16:44

-morning but that she thought she was all right.

-Have you told her?

0:16:440:16:47

-No.

-Why?

0:16:470:16:51

-Well, it didn't feel right.

-"It didn't feel right"?

-Yeah,

0:16:510:16:54

-but you should have seen her.

-Call the police.

-No.

0:16:540:16:58

Anthony! Anthony, no! Listen to me.

0:17:020:17:05

Listen to me.

0:17:050:17:08

If we report this now, Gemma will never get that baby back, not ever.

0:17:090:17:15

Look at what she wrote!

0:17:150:17:17

Imagine if you were a kid and you started to have a baby

0:17:170:17:21

and you didn't even know you were pregnant!

0:17:210:17:23

She can't make a decision that will affect the rest of her life tonight.

0:17:230:17:28

She needs support.

0:17:280:17:31

She needs a second chance.

0:17:310:17:33

And we can give it to her.

0:17:330:17:36

In the morning,

0:17:360:17:38

we will.

0:17:380:17:40

Why are you in here?

0:17:590:18:02

I didn't want to wake you up.

0:18:020:18:04

I wasn't asleep.

0:18:040:18:05

You can't hold her all night, you know.

0:18:090:18:11

-Do you want to hold her?

-No.

0:18:130:18:15

No, I mean...

0:18:170:18:19

It's all right.

0:18:220:18:23

Good girl!

0:18:280:18:29

You've got some explaining to do.

0:18:480:18:50

I had that snooty cow from youth club here, banging on the door, turning her nose up at my house,

0:18:510:18:59

-saying something about you need to see a doctor.

-A doctor?

0:18:590:19:03

Gemma, what's wrong with you?

0:19:040:19:06

-Nothing!

-I haven't time for your stories, Gemma.

0:19:060:19:09

Just tell me what you've done.

0:19:090:19:11

Whatever it is,

0:19:130:19:15

just tell me the truth. Now.

0:19:150:19:18

Are you sure you're going to be all right?

0:19:240:19:27

-Can I come in?

-No.

0:20:140:20:17

She didn't come home. I haven't seen her.

0:20:170:20:19

-I don't know where she is.

-I need to find her.

0:20:190:20:21

Good luck.

0:20:210:20:24

Come on, come on, come on. Lie down.

0:20:300:20:34

There you go, there you go, eh?

0:20:340:20:37

It's OK. It's OK.

0:20:370:20:40

It's OK.

0:20:400:20:41

I just need to know who her boyfriend is.

0:20:440:20:48

She's not in trouble. No-one is.

0:20:480:20:52

And it's not snitching, it's helping.

0:20:520:20:55

I just need a name and address.

0:20:550:21:00

Oh, come on!

0:21:000:21:02

-BABY CRIES

-Oh, baby, baby, baby, baby.

0:21:050:21:08

It's OK, it's OK, it's OK, it's OK. You're OK.

0:21:080:21:13

Hiya, Mary Ann. Have you brought my shoes?

0:21:180:21:20

Are they like yours but pink ones?

0:21:200:21:23

No.

0:21:230:21:24

-No, I haven't yet.

-Well, they're going to look great, and all the boys'll fancy me.

0:21:240:21:29

Have you got a boyfriend, Mizzy?

0:21:310:21:34

Of course you have, a beautiful girl like you.

0:21:340:21:39

What about everyone else at the club? I miss out on all the gossip.

0:21:390:21:43

Do you know who Gemma Gooch is going out with these days?

0:21:430:21:47

I know. Have you?

0:21:510:21:53

Oh!

0:21:530:21:54

Ohhh... That's not good. That's not good, is it?

0:21:540:21:58

No, that's not good.

0:21:580:22:00

Do you want your bum changed? Do you want...?

0:22:000:22:03

Let's change your bum, OK?

0:22:030:22:04

Come on. Good girl.

0:22:040:22:07

No, no, no, no, no.

0:22:070:22:09

Oh, no, no! There you go..

0:22:090:22:13

Hey, baby, look here.

0:22:130:22:16

She's not here.

0:23:020:23:04

Well, where is she, then?

0:23:040:23:07

When you do see her, tell her that I'm not going to stop looking for her.

0:23:090:23:13

Tell her that the problem won't just go away.

0:23:130:23:18

She needs to talk.

0:23:180:23:20

And not just to me.

0:23:200:23:22

To her mum.

0:23:220:23:24

And to you too, probably.

0:23:240:23:26

I just want to give her a second chance.

0:23:290:23:33

We all deserve that, don't we?

0:23:330:23:35

Good girl, Grace.

0:23:580:24:00

KNOCKING

0:24:160:24:18

-What?

-We need to talk.

0:24:200:24:22

Gemma. She's had a baby.

0:24:360:24:40

Two days ago.

0:24:420:24:44

I think I would know if my own daughter was pregnant.

0:24:440:24:48

Well, she didn't even know herself.

0:24:480:24:50

She left the baby in my car with a note.

0:24:500:24:56

-Would she know how to get into a car if it were locked?

-Yeah.

0:24:570:25:02

She was only a couple of hours old.

0:25:040:25:07

Could have been more, I'm not really sure.

0:25:070:25:10

But she's well. She's OK.

0:25:100:25:13

And I haven't told anyone - except my husband. He's looking after her.

0:25:130:25:17

I thought that if I did, she wouldn't get a second chance.

0:25:180:25:24

And she needs to know that she's not alone.

0:25:240:25:26

I have seen her.

0:25:260:25:29

And I asked her.

0:25:290:25:30

She said she just broke a window.

0:25:300:25:33

I don't care about that.

0:25:330:25:35

She lives under my roof.

0:25:360:25:39

I'm her mum. I would know.

0:25:390:25:42

I would.

0:25:440:25:46

We can all live with someone without looking at them, can't we?

0:25:480:25:51

We can miss what's right in front of our eyes.

0:25:520:25:55

We get so lost in ourselves and our sorrows and problems that anyone else's...

0:25:560:26:02

-BABY BEGINS TO CRY

-Shh, shh. Come on.

0:26:100:26:12

-What are you doing?

-Why didn't you answer?

0:26:180:26:21

-You can't just let yourself in!

-I've got a key.

0:26:210:26:23

-For emergencies!

-I was ringing all yesterday.

0:26:230:26:26

-I'm ill.

-Well, why are all the curtains closed?

0:26:260:26:30

-I don't want to see anybody.

-Take the chain off.

-No.

0:26:300:26:32

-Mary Ann!

-She isn't in.

0:26:320:26:34

-Where is she?

-I'm going back to bed.

0:26:340:26:36

Is she OK?

0:26:360:26:38

-I'll get her to give you a ring.

-Look, we're worried about you.

0:26:380:26:41

-Don't be.

-Well, we are.

0:26:410:26:43

Well, don't. Bye.

0:26:430:26:45

# Hush, little baby, don't you cry... #

0:26:510:26:59

Has that cow been back?

0:27:020:27:04

Yes, she has.

0:27:040:27:06

-I'll help you.

-We both will.

0:27:060:27:10

I know I've not been...

0:27:110:27:13

..but things are going to change. They are.

0:27:150:27:18

We'll to bring this baby up together.

0:27:180:27:20

-Are you pregnant?

-Me?

0:27:200:27:23

Your mum knows, Gemma. I've told her.

0:27:230:27:25

The baby's OK, but we need to make sure you are, too.

0:27:270:27:30

You're crackers, you. You're proper mental.

0:27:300:27:32

You've been through a traumatic experience.

0:27:320:27:34

-You've had a baby. You didn't...

-Do I look like I've had a baby?

0:27:340:27:37

But I saw you.

0:27:390:27:41

You were by my car. You ran.

0:27:410:27:43

Yeah, cos I bricked a window.

0:27:430:27:45

And I don't feel bad about it, cos everyone said you were going on about me like a total weirdo.

0:27:450:27:49

I stopped going cos you wouldn't leave me alone!

0:27:490:27:52

You think you're dead good sorting out other people's lives? Try sorting your own out first.

0:27:520:27:57

I'm sorry. I...I'm so sorry...

0:27:580:28:00

I think you should leave.

0:28:000:28:02

Are you telling me it's been almost 48 hours since we - no, since you -

0:28:130:28:17

found a baby, and we still haven't reported it, even though we don't have a clue whose baby it...

0:28:170:28:22

Who's ever it is, she saw my car, she thought that she could answer our prayers.

0:28:220:28:27

They didn't answer mine!

0:28:270:28:29

You know what we are to people, don't you?

0:28:290:28:31

We're that couple.

0:28:310:28:33

We're that couple that can't have babies.

0:28:330:28:36

We're that couple that looked after someone else's baby, that can't bear to hold another baby in their arms.

0:28:360:28:41

We're that couple. We are that couple!

0:28:410:28:44

I can't cope with this. You look after her.

0:28:440:28:46

I'm going out for a drink.

0:28:460:28:48

-I need to get out.

-Because that'll solve everything, won't it?

0:28:480:28:51

You and Dean go down the pub and then the baby'll just vanish, won't she?

0:28:510:28:55

All problems solved!

0:28:550:28:56

I'll tell you why I go out, then, shall I? Eh? You want to know?

0:28:560:28:59

Because it's a laugh.

0:28:590:29:02

Because Dean is a laugh. And you're not.

0:29:020:29:05

You're not.

0:29:050:29:07

You know, you're a cry. That might not be a term, that.

0:29:080:29:14

It might not be what people say.

0:29:140:29:16

But if some people can be a laugh,

0:29:160:29:18

then others must be a cry. And that's what you are.

0:29:180:29:21

I don't even like being drunk. Not really.

0:29:210:29:24

But it's better than being here with you.

0:29:240:29:27

I hate being sober.

0:29:290:29:30

I hate having had no pints.

0:29:300:29:33

I hate the awkward first couple.

0:29:330:29:35

I don't like having had four or five and realising that I'm being a bit of an idiot,

0:29:350:29:39

that I'm not where I should be, that I'm ignoring my phone and that I'm going to feel rough in the morning.

0:29:390:29:45

But there's a moment, right? There's a third-pint moment that feels just...

0:29:450:29:49

And I wish I didn't have to have a drop to get it.

0:29:490:29:52

I wish that I could get it here with you, that feeling, because I used to!

0:29:520:29:56

Well, it's not my fault she wanted Grace back!

0:29:560:29:58

-No, it's not, but it's your fault that you wouldn't let me...

-What?

0:29:580:30:02

-You wouldn't let me hug you, hold you.

-When?

0:30:020:30:04

When? That night!

0:30:040:30:06

Most nights!

0:30:060:30:08

I don't always feel like it!

0:30:080:30:10

-WHISPERS:

-I do.

0:30:120:30:14

I will find the mother.

0:30:190:30:24

LOUD DANCE MUSIC

0:30:550:30:57

MUSIC STOPS

0:30:590:31:00

Mary Ann, where've you...?

0:31:000:31:02

Are you all right?

0:31:020:31:04

I need to talk to the kids.

0:31:040:31:06

Why don't you go into the back and...

0:31:060:31:08

Right, all you lot, you're going to have to go.

0:31:080:31:11

All boys out.

0:31:110:31:13

I SAID GO!

0:31:140:31:15

-Mary Ann!

-You too.

0:31:170:31:20

-You can't just...

-Girls only.

0:31:200:31:23

Girls?

0:31:260:31:27

One of you has a secret.

0:31:360:31:39

One of you left something in my car two nights ago.

0:31:390:31:43

That girl needs to step forward now.

0:31:430:31:46

It'll be OK.

0:31:480:31:50

Everything will be OK.

0:31:500:31:53

Believe me.

0:31:530:31:55

But you need to step forward now.

0:31:550:31:57

Come on.

0:32:060:32:07

-She's a liar. Mizzy hasn't got any secrets!

-Leave her alone.

0:32:110:32:14

-She tells everyone everything.

-Youse are all jealous, that's all. Mary Ann's my friend.

0:32:140:32:18

Mizzy, it's OK.

0:32:180:32:23

What was it, then? What was in the car?

0:32:230:32:25

Mizzy?

0:32:270:32:29

What was in my car?

0:32:290:32:32

I just need you to whisper it in my ear now, OK?

0:32:320:32:36

Pink shoes?

0:32:390:32:41

I know how frightened you must be.

0:32:510:32:54

Oh.

0:32:570:32:59

Maybe this isn't the right place.

0:32:590:33:01

You all know where I live.

0:33:030:33:04

Whoever it is,

0:33:040:33:07

you have to come round. Tomorrow, in the morning, nine o'clock.

0:33:070:33:11

I can't keep what you left.

0:33:150:33:18

I can't.

0:33:200:33:22

And if you don't come,

0:33:220:33:24

I'll have to tell.

0:33:260:33:28

I'll have to....

0:33:280:33:29

I'll have to hand it over to someone else.

0:33:320:33:35

And then there'll be no going back.

0:33:350:33:38

So please, please,

0:33:390:33:42

nine o'clock tomorrow, please come.

0:33:420:33:48

Last night, then.

0:34:070:34:09

This is ridiculous. There's no-one coming.

0:34:320:34:34

-DOOR BELL RINGS

-There's no-one...

0:34:340:34:38

Are you Mary Ann Walsh?

0:34:560:35:00

Can we come in?

0:35:010:35:02

Do you drive a Nissan Tiida, registration SF09 JYY?

0:35:170:35:23

And you were driving it three days ago on Church Road at 8:15?

0:35:230:35:31

RADIO CHATTER Reading. Over.

0:35:310:35:34

Had a bit of a surprise, didn't you?

0:35:360:35:38

Well, a pedestrian saw you and reported it.

0:35:390:35:42

-A pedestrian?

-Saw you

0:35:420:35:45

clip a stationary vehicle, get out, have a look and drive away.

0:35:450:35:52

Is that all you've come for?

0:35:520:35:54

Leaving the scene of an accident's a serious business.

0:35:540:35:57

Well, I didn't know I'd damaged the car. If I had, I would've...

0:35:570:36:01

I'm sorry, I...

0:36:010:36:03

Anthony?

0:36:030:36:05

-Anthony? Could you just come and...

-Was someone with you at the time?

0:36:050:36:09

-It's OK, it's OK. It's OK.

-It's erm....

0:36:090:36:11

We'll be in touch.

0:36:110:36:12

It's OK, it's OK.

0:36:180:36:19

Why did you hide?

0:36:220:36:25

-Mary Ann...

-We have to tell them. It's finished!

0:36:250:36:28

I think we should keep her.

0:36:280:36:30

You're right, it's not about the mother. She could be anyone.

0:36:320:36:35

The fact is, she doesn't want her.

0:36:370:36:40

That's what the note said. She wants us to have her.

0:36:400:36:43

So we can't tell the police or social services or anyone.

0:36:440:36:49

Y'know, she's ours now.

0:36:510:36:53

You prayed for a baby, and we've got one.

0:36:530:36:56

I didn't pray for that baby.

0:36:560:36:58

-I prayed for Grace.

-Well, Grace is gone.

0:36:580:37:00

She's got a mum.

0:37:000:37:02

SHE hasn't.

0:37:020:37:04

She needs us.

0:37:040:37:06

Where are we saying we got her from?

0:37:100:37:12

Don't you think people'll wonder where...

0:37:120:37:15

Then we'll move.

0:37:150:37:17

You want us to give up our whole lives for her?

0:37:170:37:21

It's what being a parent is, isn't it?

0:37:210:37:23

-Anthony...

-She'll be fostered.

0:37:250:37:27

Maybe adopted.

0:37:270:37:29

Y'know, but not by us cos we kept her hidden for three days.

0:37:290:37:34

And I don't know if that means we go to prison or we get done or what.

0:37:340:37:38

But I'm damn sure it means that we don't get to keep the baby.

0:37:380:37:40

I'm damn sure it means we don't get to keep any baby ever.

0:37:400:37:44

We can make it work, babe. We can.

0:37:470:37:50

What about her? What do we tell her when she gets older?

0:37:520:37:57

What do we say to her? Do you want her whole life to be a lie?

0:37:570:38:04

Please, tell me what we say to her.

0:38:040:38:07

Tell me, please, tell me!

0:38:070:38:08

Because if you can answer me that...

0:38:080:38:11

I bloody love her already.

0:38:160:38:17

I know.

0:38:190:38:22

So there's only one thing we can do.

0:38:220:38:25

BABY STARTS TO CRY

0:38:250:38:26

It's OK, it's OK. There you go.

0:38:270:38:29

She's there, she's there. She's there, she's there.

0:38:290:38:33

Anthony...

0:38:420:38:43

Anthony?

0:38:430:38:45

There you go.

0:38:470:38:48

Now, you won't remember this, little girl,

0:39:120:39:15

any of this or either of us.

0:39:150:39:18

But we're not going to forget you.

0:39:180:39:23

OK?

0:39:230:39:25

We won't forget you.

0:39:250:39:28

Promise.

0:39:280:39:29

Anthony out?

0:39:470:39:49

We're not going to forget you.

0:39:510:39:53

Wasn't that Grace's?

0:39:590:40:01

Mary Ann, come on!

0:40:090:40:13

You can't go on like this.

0:40:130:40:15

You can't.

0:40:150:40:17

You both mean a lot to us. To all of us.

0:40:170:40:22

We've been thinking about maybe a holiday.

0:40:220:40:25

-I know.

-For you.

0:40:250:40:27

We'll pay. You don't have to worry about the money.

0:40:270:40:30

I wasn't.

0:40:300:40:31

-Or you could come and stay with us.

-Well, why would we...?

0:40:330:40:39

If you needed to.

0:40:390:40:41

If you needed a break from...everything.

0:40:430:40:47

We... We can see the effect everything's had on you.

0:40:500:40:55

Peter and I know that relationships aren't easy.

0:40:550:40:58

We all need a bit of help now and then.

0:40:580:41:00

So we're here to help.

0:41:000:41:03

OK?

0:41:030:41:03

Mary Ann?

0:41:060:41:08

You just seem so closed off, you know, and just...

0:41:080:41:12

It's you, isn't it?

0:41:130:41:15

My car door. It wasn't locked.

0:41:180:41:21

Well, it was at the club, but not at your house.

0:41:210:41:25

Did you really not know?

0:41:260:41:28

Were you all on your own?

0:41:300:41:33

I've just come round with everyone else to...

0:41:330:41:37

see how things are, if anything's...

0:41:370:41:40

If anything's...

0:41:420:41:43

"If anything's..."?

0:41:490:41:52

Ruth?

0:41:530:41:54

I want you to have her.

0:41:540:41:56

I want you to. I don't know what to do!

0:41:560:41:59

-She's for you! She's for you.

-Ruth?

0:41:590:42:03

Darling?

0:42:040:42:06

-What's going on?

-What's wrong?

When Mary-Ann and Anthony's attempt to adopt their foster baby Grace founders at the last possible moment, they resign themselves to a lifetime of heartbreak. It doesn't help that Mary-Ann's sister Sarah, with three teenage kids, is always ready with interfering advice.

Anthony seeks solace in the pub, Mary-Ann in running the local youth club. Then, a year later, a newborn baby girl is left in the backseat of their car.

Mary-Ann knows the pain of giving up a baby and is determined to reunite mother and child without involving the police. But as the days go by with no sign of the mother, the chance of a happy ending starts to look more and more unlikely.
