Meet the young widows:

The hot mess

Kylie is done with commitment. Her trust in men died with her husband. Now she trawls bars looking for fun – no strings, no promises, no second night. That is until she meets a man who seems to want more, but is it a mistake to trust again?

The new member

Hannah’s grief is fresh and reminds the other widows how raw their pain once was – however, do they want to let that back into their lives?

The wallflower

Isabel is used to hiding in the shadows, her past still haunts her. Only her late husband knew what happened the night that ruined her life.

The fiancée

Adriana is moving on. But as her wedding draws closer, she’s starting to question how well she truly knows her partner. Then she receives an anonymous note that reads: Get out while you still can.

Four very different women brought together by their grief, only to find their lives are inexplicably linked in the darkest of ways.
