Architect Mark Bradford escaped to the country town of Bindarra Creek with his seven year old daughter, never wanting to relive the nightmare of his past.
When Frenchwoman Brigitte de Rosier arrives as Mark’s live-in nanny, Mark’s world is turned upside down. All those painful memories he thought buried long ago, resurface, and he struggles with inner demons and guilt.
Brigitte came to Bindarra Creek to spend time with her uncle, her own guilt hanging over her head. She never expected to be drawn to her remote, new boss and his lonely daughter. She wants to bring some light into their shadowy lives but can't seem to get through to him.
Mark is over-protective and doesn't agree with Brigitte's belief in giving his little girl some freedom. But there's a very good reason for that.
When Brigitte stumbles upon the shocking truth, Mark confesses all and she finally learns the reason why he's been so up and down. Will the ghost of his past keep them apart forever?
