Bianca (Patsy Palmer) is enjoying a quiet day working on the market stall when she receives an unexpected call from Liam's school, explaining that the teenager hasn't turned up once again.
Shocked and angry that Liam is making a habit of this, Bianca goes looking for him at McKlunky's, which gives her a chance to pour her heart out to Shirley (Linda Henry).
Shirley is initially unsympathetic as she thinks that Bianca is just being tough on the kids to compensate for her own mistakes. However, when Bianca explains that Liam's truancy could send her back to prison, will Shirley offer any useful advice?
