As the nanny to four quirky but loveable children, Charlie French has learnt that if there was ever a cement shortage Weetabix would be a viable substitute and that YouTube videos can go viral in seconds, much to her horror. But, most importantly, she's learnt that whatever happens you stick together as a family. When tragedy strikes, Charlie is forced to decide whether it’s time to move on or fight to keep the children she loves.
