Charlotte O'Keefe's beautiful adored daughter, Willow, is born with a severe form of brittle bone disease. If she slips on a crisp packet she could break both her legs. After years of caring for Willow her family faces financial disaster.
Then Charlotte is offered a lifeline. She could sue her obstetrician for wrongful birth - for not having diagnosed Willow's condition early enough into the pregnancy to be able to abort the child. The payout could secure Willow's future. But to receive it would mean Charlotte suing her best friend. And standing up in court to declare that she would have preferred that Willow had never been born...
