A family searches for new beginnings:

Ben thinks they might be better off without him, but his wife Cat has read her stars:

'Today a very special person will appear from out the blue'.

Their daughter Loops is getting ready for a date.

It's her first one, and she has everything crossed.

People think that cos you're from a small village, everyone will know you.

But we can still go missing.

Even out here.
