Mandy is being picked on by Kim and her henchwomen, Melanie and Sarah. Not only is she singled out for bullying but the girls disparage her mother who is much older than the rest of the mums. Mandy's life changes when, trying to get away from the girls, she runs out in front of a bus and is allowed to stay at home until school breaks up.
