A teaser for episode 4 shares: “Kathy begs Megan to stay with Jess in the UK when she flies to Turkey for Noah’s court case. Throwing her entire life away for a man she’s only just met, in her family’s hour of need; how could her sister be so selfish? Underlying resentments between Kathy and Megan erupt, and Kathy is left with no choice but to take Jess with her. Steve reacts unpredictably to Megan’s trip to Turkey, forcing Megan to confront the consequences of her actions.
“Meanwhile, with no return in sight, Kathy hits a downward spiral and Martin’s anger hits boiling point. The whole family are more divided than ever, but face their biggest trial yet when Noah’s final court verdict draws closer. Lawyer Rico argues for Noah’s freedom, but the case against Noah is strong and they all fear the worst.
“A fun family holiday turned into a life-shattering journey for the whole family.”

A synopsis of the series shares: “Looking forward to an idyllic all-inclusive luxury break in Turkey to enjoy the sun and sea with extended family members, Kathy and Martin, their son Noah and younger daughter Jessica are blissfully unaware of the horrific ordeal about to unfold.
“Their holiday is a chance to unwind and for Kathy and Martin to spend some much-needed time together. Until unsuspecting Noah accepts a seemingly innocent invitation to a beach party from a fellow holidaymaker, Rosie, who is staying at the same hotel.
“Suddenly Kathy and Martin’s world spectacularly falls apart when they are left desperately fighting for their son’s freedom against extremely challenging circumstances.
“An arrest, an expensive and alien legal system, looming media coverage and resistance from fellow holidaymakers to come to their aid leaves the distraught parents fighting for Noah’s freedom when ironically he should be at school sitting his latest exams.”
