Two young sisters, one a teen ager, the younger only 8, have always lived a sheltered life with an affectionate and caring mother. When mom dies in an road accident, the young girls, daughters of two different fathers, are put in charge of social services while waiting to be sent each to her own parent, who live an ocean apart. Determined as they are not to be separated, they run away. The town where they have always lived, becomes of a sudden an unknown and dangerous place.
