Unconvinced of her mother's apparent cause of death, Sheena, with the support of her brothers is adamant to prove otherwise. Having lost her mother, and recalling their last conversation, she finds the courage to face up to Tom and tells him exactly what she thinks of him, and sex, and demands a divorce. But, can she stick to her guns and follow through? Will she be able to find someone to love who will love and respect her in return?
