Lincoln is set to testify against Nils V., his former boss. Lincoln's statement will be corroborated by a criminal acquaintance named Bobby Chisel, who's in witness protection back in Queensland.

Meanwhile, the Swift family tries to get on with life in a new city. Bec is horrified to realise that in the upheaval she's forgotten her daughter Tara's birthday. Rattled, she drives Tara and Mitch to their new school, but on the way she side-swipes a parked car -- and makes the decision to flee.

The school itself turns out to be a performing-arts institution, and the cops have sent the wrong paperwork for the kids. Mitch is put into a singing class, and humiliated. He's a surfer, not a singer and he's just fallen in love for the first time, back on the Gold Coast. He wants his old life back.

Lincoln goes to the university to meet with Pinder, but the detective fails to show up. Lincoln finds himself drawn into a forensic psychology tutorial, and becomes part of the debate.

Bec — broke and desperate — walks into a bank and applies for a credit card, but her new I.D. sets off warning bells in the bank's computer system, and the staff there seek to detain her until police can arrive. Bec realises Pinder is incompetent or crooked. Or both.

At the uni, Lincoln sees a news report on TV: Bobby Chisel's been shot dead, his body thrown from a car. So much for witness protection.

Bec and Lincoln are faced with two choices: sit back and wait to be killed, or get the hell out of there. They pack up their meagre possessions, grab the kids out of school and hit the road. But with no money, no plan and no petrol, they soon run out of options.
