An uncle who went too far.
A mother who didn't care.
A little girl who waited years for justice.

In 1950s and '60s Dundee, the only ray of light in little Laurie's life came from the man who would return home with pockets full of sweets and bags of toys. Uncle Andrew would shower Laurie with attention and love, capture the hearts of everyone around him - and carefully groom her for years of abuse by not only himself, but also by a network of paedophiles.

Laurie tells a harrowing story of isolation, as her abusers went to extraordinary lengths to carry out their sick acts, wearing masks to confuse and torment her and keeping her away from other children. But these evil men had no idea that the girl they systematically violated would turn into one of the country's leading child protection experts, and that their legacy would give her the impetus to change the lives of so many innocent victims.
