The Ties that Bind
Kate is steadfast and reliable, she's a 'sticker'. She understands that success is borne out of hard work and self-sacrifice, if things aren't working out she just needs to try a little harder.
Annie is a drug addict. Trying to blot out the pain of her childhood she catapults from one disaster to the next until the cost of her self-destruction becomes too much to bear.
Both women love Jack, Annie's enigmatic autumn child who melts hearts with his easy smile and sorry tale. Each will do what she must to protect him.
