Nurse Donna is stunned to receive a box of her late father Derek’s belongings. In amongst them is a note, asking her to deliver an old chess board to ‘Patti’ – whose address is provided. When Donna tracks down the address she’s horrified to find a woman collapsed, with a small child near by. Managing to wake the woman, she realises she’s ‘Patti’, struggling to look after her young granddaughter, Mia.

With so much to take in, Donna reels from the day’s events but having made a connection with Mia, agrees. Just as Donna’s lost a father, it seems she’s inherited a family…
