Xenia is 13 years old. She is not like other teenagers with gadgets, parties and lots of friends. Most of her life she has taken on the responsibility of helping her single mum looking after the house and her smaller siblings. Although Xenia takes pride in this role it affects her social life as well as her schoolwork. Now Xenia has an opportunity to start all over. She has enrolled in a continuation school, but can she escape her past and learn to be a normal teenager?
