It's fair to say that Maddie's life is far from rewarding. With a mother who spends most of her time in Ghana, Maddie is the primary caretaker for her father, who suffers from Parkinson's. At work, her boss is a nightmare and Maddie is tired of being the only Black person in every meeting. When her mum returns from her latest trip to Ghana, Maddie leaps at the chance to get out of the family home and finally start living. She finds a flat share, says yes to after-work drinks, pushes for more recognition in her career, and throws herself into dating. But it's not long before tragedy strikes, forcing Maddie to face the true nature of her unconventional family.
