But when, quite unexpectedly, Tom receives two bits of news, his world is cruelly shattered and he realises things will have to change. Tom sets out to fight for his son, determined to keep him safe from Ruth, who is equally determined to keep Casey with her. Then tragedy strikes, and fate takes a hand. Many miles away, across the globe, events are already underway that will change the course of many people's lives. It seems that Tom's prophetic words are coming true "It's done. The dice is thrown, and nobody wins."
