'This is like throwing a punch at a tidal wave.
It's not going to make it stop or slow down.
It's just going to engulf you, and me.
Until there's nothing left.'
A young man enters a community centre, covered in flour and looking for help.
He finds Cath, a cleaner, who reluctantly lets him stay in her son's room.
A split second decision which will change her life forever.
