Mary is directly responsible for the death of her mother Mary-Ann in a car accident on icy roads and finds it difficult to cope, suffering terrible nightmares, which cause her to scream in the dead of night, waking her father Joe and older sister Kelly. Hoping for a fresh start, the family moves temporarily to Genova where Joe has accepted a year's teaching post, reuniting him with old colleague Barbara. While Kelly enjoys the freedom of Italy, flirting with a number of local boys and testing her father's patience by staying out late, Mary remains aloof, glimpsing what could be the ghost of her dead mother. Tensions within the family come to a head during an ill-fated visit to the seaside.
