Flora is eager for approval from her aloof father. The affection she so sorely craves has recently been provided in abundance by her step-mother Katherine. She is drawn to the glamour of The Paradise and enjoys spending her days amongst the beautiful products and the friends she has made there. Flora’s seemingly blessed existence fronts a troubled home-life, as she increasingly finds herself at the centre of her parents’ arguments.
