Single mother Sandra escapes her abusive partner with her two young children, only to find herself trapped in temporary accommodation.
After months of struggling, she draws inspiration from one of her daughter’s bedtime stories and hits upon the idea of self-building an affordable home. She finds an architect who provides her with plans and is offered land by Peggy, a woman she cleans for. Aido, a building contractor, appears willing to help, too. But as her past rears its head in the form of Gary, her possessive ex, and as bureaucrats fight back against her independent spirit, will Sandra be able to rebuild her life from the ground up?
