When retiree Carole Seddon decides to take a walk and explore the South Downs of the town of Weldisham she gets caught in a sudden rainstorm. She runs for shelter in an old barn where she finds two fertilizer bags stuffed with human bones. Once she gets back to the town she reports her find to the local police. News travels quickly in Weldisham and before her ride home arrives the news of her discovery is the talk of the local pub. The townspeople think the remains may be of a missing girl named Tamsin Lutteridge.

Carole returns to Weldisham looking for clues but the townspeople are reluctant to open up to an outsider.
