Neighbours, Toadie Rebecchi, Sonya Rebecchi, Willow Somers

Toadie comes to the rescue of trapped Willow. But will he and Willow be too late to save Sonya, whose life is slipping away out in the bush...

Willow Somers is the only one who knows her wicked grandmother Alice Wells is behind Sonya Rebecchi's poisoning and disappearance, as part of a twisted plan to wreck Sonya and hubby Toadie's marriage and reunite Toadie with Alice's equally twisted daughter Andrea.

However, Alice has taken drastic action to make sure her plans aren't foiled and that loyal Willow doesn't tell Toadie the truth.

Having been locked in the potting shed by scheming Alice, teenager Alice attempts to escape. Her lone hope lies with Toadie, who she has sent a warning text message to.

Although distracted by Sonya's disappearance and his incorrect belief she may have relapsed and gone off on a bender, Toadie finally notices Willow's SOS message and races to the rescue! But will he and Willow be in time to save Sonya's life?
