Bad things are never supposed to happen in Elbridge. At least, that's what Valerie Dawson once thought. Now finding herself a single mother after a horrific and tragic event, she is trying her best to keep her two young children away from the evils of the world.
Soon, however, Valerie starts to lose control, and realises that there is little she can do to stop the bad people from coming back...and they want her children.
