As he comes to terms with the fact daughter Rachel has leukaemia, Sacha receives some worrying news about her progress. Sacha’s torn between being the doting dad and visiting sick Rachel on the children’s ward, and doing his job on AAU, where elderly couple Bert and Betty have been admitted following a car accident. While he’s with them, Rachel goes missing. When he finds her, Rachel admits she just wants to be a normal teenager and is worried the chemotherapy she’s having will leave her with no hair – and no friends!
