Jacqui has left her abusive husband in West London, and with her twelve year old son Timmy has come to live with her parents on Dartmoor. Despite the unfamiliar surroundings Timmy soon falls in love with the open spaces of the moor and its wild life. But his natural curiosity get him unwittingly caught up in a crime.

Fortunately he has been befriended by Mick Cribbett, a white-haired mystery man who lives on his own and never mentions his past, giving rise to much speculation.
