It was produced at Pebble Mill by Roger Gregory and directed by Brian Farnham and starred Jacqueline Tong as Sonia, a mother struggling on her own with two young children. The cast also included Christian Bale. The climax of the series comes at the Glastonbury Carnival (shown in the last photo), with a fire and the death of one of the characters.
