While most 16 year olds would be out partying, Charlotte has to stay home and deal with the responsibilities of being a single parent. Her plans to join RAF (Royal Air Force) were made drastically more difficult when she found out she was pregnant at 15 with a boyfriend that she would constantly argue with. With Charlotte's amazing determination to pursue her dream career… and a bit of free babysitting from her mum Kelly, she was back at her school in North Wales just three weeks after giving birth.
A year on and Charlotte is struggling to stay at college whilst the growing tension between her and her mum is making the house more hostile than homely. Mum Kelly feels underappreciated for the work she’s having to do with the baby and Charlotte is anxious that her child will grow up seeing her mum jobless, the very thing she hated most about her own mum growing up. Every conversation turns into an argument.
Charlotte is determined to secure a future for her and her baby but does this mean sacrificing a future relationship with her mum?
