When Libby claims her new painkillers are not as effective as her old ones, Niamh suspects her 17-year-old grandson, Ed, might know why and he soon confesses – he’s been stealing the painkillers and replacing them with vitamins.
Ed explains he was bullied into handing the painkillers over to a gang of boys and, when Niamh suggests involving the police, Ed convinces them he won’t steal the pills again. However, unbeknownst to Niamh and Libby, Ed shows his much darker side when it’s revealed he’s been stockpilling the pills himself…
