Hayley swore when she got out of prison that she would turn her life around.
But living on the Devil's Estate doesn't make that easy.
She spends her days looking after her daughter, and her nights collecting cash from people who can't get loans any other way.
But someone has just robbed her. And she has twenty-four hours to get the money back, or her boss will come for her.
Her criminal ex-boyfriend says he can help. Hayley wants nothing to do with him. But time is running out, and she has to choose - save herself, or save her soul?
If she makes one false move, her life will be over...
