After a cold, hard winter on the streets, three orphan children are about to give up hope when unexpected events bring them to the doorstep of a grand house in Ardwick, Manchester. Taken in by the firm but kind-hearted cook, the young friends can hardly believe their luck. But behind Bracken House's impressive facade lies a household steeped in troubles and mystery, with residents above and below stairs hiding their own dark secrets. Not everyone is happy about the new arrivals and soon the orphans' safety is in danger. Will they come to regret ever leaving the mean slum streets they once called home?
