This absorbing drama involves a compassionate social worker, Caroline, who wants to do the best possible thing for the vulnerable children in her charge. But the kids keep coming one case after another. Luna Gale is one of those children taken from damaged parents. Which family care option will be the ideal solution? The decision lies in the hands of a "failed" social worker with her own inner struggles.
