'Fitting the Pieces' is the true to life story of what happens when the Titanic is asked to turn around.

Jack is an experienced social worker who returns to the child protection field again some twenty-five years after his career first began. He soon finds himself at odds with some of the case decisions and practices, and with the ideology shaping them. But Jack finds no audience for his views.

The lives of some innocent families are in danger of being shattered, and Jack finally decides that he has to act. However, the system has ways of dealing with dissidents.
