8:30pm – Saturday, September 25 on ABC1
When police are called to a badly injured young woman Zoe Richards (Leila Mimmack) who has apparently fallen from a first floor window, she won’t tell them what happened.
Police then discover the house is a brothel, and Zoe’s apparently been working as a prostitute.
With suspicious burn marks on her arms Zoe’s pimp Dylan Prest (William Ellis), is questioned and police think he may have pushed Zoe out the window. But there is insufficient evidence to prosecute, and Prest claims he is innocent.
Sgt. Stone (Sam Callis) and PC Kirsty Knight (Sarah Manners) are increasingly frustrated when they can’t place Prest at the scene at the time Zoe fell, but they’re convinced he either pushed Zoe or she jumped to get away from him.
Zoe finally admits that she jumped because Prest was knocking at her door and she knew he was going to harm her. But police are at a loss about how to charge Prest when he didn’t actually get to her.
Meanwhile, Zoe’s credit card machine reveals she had a client that morning, and Sgt. Stone hopes they may have a witness to what happened. But what Zoe’s client tells them takes Prest out of the frame altogether. However, no-one is happy that Prest should get away with his treatment of Zoe, and PC Knight feels compromised when she thinks Sgt. Stone has taken matters into his own hands.
Sgt. Stone, meanwhile, having ignored his mother’s phone calls all day, listens with dread to the message he doesn’t want to hear…
