Intrigued to learn she has family locally, Tilly digs deeper, discovering her great-grandmother's past and the eerie parallels in her own life. As she explores the treacherous moors, she discovers mysterious pieces of cherry-red ribbon. What do they signify and who is the familiar face in the local pub? Then a chance encounter with celebrity footballer Clayton Silver leads Tilly into a high-octane world that spells danger. Can the ribbons from the past be a lifeline to the present?
