Sandi says her husband of 12 years, Iain, has never been able to bond with her now 15-year-old daughter, Samantha, whom she claims he despises.

Sandi says she and Iain are constantly fighting and he has threatened to kick his stepdaughter out of the house four-to-five times in the last year. Iain says his stepdaughter is lazy, inconsiderate, unmotivated and a master manipulator who is destroying their marriage, and he wants her out of his house at the end of the school year. But Sandi claims Iain’s mother is also a big problem and constantly stirs the pot by spying on her and her daughter and reporting everything to Iain. Sandi says her husband is always protecting his mother and treats her more like his wife and Sandi like his servant. Now, Sandi says she feels like she has to choose between her husband and her daughter. Who will Sandi choose? Will Sandi and Iain be able to save their marriage?
