'Campbell Road was home to the most notorious criminals: thieves, prostitutes, fraudsters - every sort of rogue and vagabond drifted through this slum.'

Life was tough ... but so were they. Alice Keiver is a sensitive girl, growing up in one of the roughest parts of North London. As the daughter of an alcoholic mother, and niece of an abusive uncle, she dreams that one day she and her baby sister will escape their rotten surroundings.

Alice's father, Jack Keiver, works day and night to provide for his family. But his hopes for a better life are dashed each time he returns home to find the money-jar raided and his feisty wife Tilly collapsed drunk in the corner.

In the room below, Alice's downtrodden Aunt Fran spends most of her days nursing the injuries inflicted on her by her cruel husband Jimmy - but this time he's pushed the family too far and they're not going to let him get away with it.

Revenge is going to be sweet.
