Summary
A troubled teenager Hannah falls victim to an online predator. Unable to cope with the cyber-bullying that triggers repressed memories and opens old wounds, Hannah struggles to cope with her trauma. Unable to provide their daughter with the help she desperately needs to recover, her concerned father Jake and stepmother Anne are forced to make one of the most difficult decisions a parent can make; they send Hannah to a residential treatment centre that takes an unconventional approach to recovery with the use of techniques like equine & horticulture therapy to treat its troubled young students. In denial and feeling betrayed by her parents, Hannah refuses to cooperate with the programme. As she lashes out at her peers and the staff alike, Hannah eventually finds a kindred spirit in the matriarchal Esther and a rescue horse with its own history of abuse named Betsy. Hannah starts to invest in her own recovery, yet her demons of the past threaten to reverse the progress she has made in this powerful rite of passage
