Dominic Kitchen is a wedding photographer who is used to seeing people tie the knot, an expression that also represents a sensation that he feels in the pit of his stomach. A sensation that emerges when he is in the presence of a certain person who could change his ordinary life forever. They have a secret that only they can ever know as it is something that society, even today, would struggle with. This is a tale of agonising loss and forbidden love.
It is the annual Summer holiday in Southwold for Dominic and his family. His elder sister Victoria brings her friend Maudie from University. Dominic is growing up and so are his emotions.
