A woman forms a service that provides a 'Next of Kin' for those who are lacking family connections called 'Not Alone' however, due to her own fractured and very fragmented family relationships and a rather complex situation as she diligently starts to serve others, she quickly finds herself in need of the services that she's created for other people herself.
Due to loneliness and lack of social connections in the world, Tammy forms a service that provides a stand in 'Next of Kin' for those who are in need that are lacking family connections called 'Not Alone'. A situation suddenly arises however, where Tammy herself needs to actually hire a stand in Next of Kin from 'Not Alone' to present to the world, due to complications that arise with her own biological family. The male stand in Tammy chooses called Richmond, who is officially one of her employees, rapidly assists her and together they begin to weave a web of pretence to support her requirements but life suddenly becomes extremely complicated when they actually start fall in love.
Very unexpectedly, when Tammy wins an award for her work, she is suddenly thrust into the public eye at full throttle which then puts her life under the microscope and the scrutiny of the entire world. Unfortunately, Tammy then has to make a choice to either tell her family the truth and run the risk and possibility of alienating them, or live in a web of pretence potentially forever, a web which could possibly implode at any given time which could then potentially put her current relationship at risk. Before the couple can actually announce their engagement to the world however, Richmond and Tammy must not only find a way to undo all the seeds of pretension they have already sown into the lives of other people around them but also they must fix Tammy's now very fragmented and rocky relationship with her family.
