Three days prior to her thirteenth birthday, Tracy books two bouncy castles and arranges band auditions, which angers Shelley, who is further annoyed by Tracy when she is unimpressed with a chocolate sponge for her birthday cake and Tracy's large birthday plans. Upon visiting Cam, Tracy storms out when she believes Cam is excluding her, but Cam catches up with her to reveal her birthday surprise for Tracy, which is wanting to be her foster mother. At Tracy's leaving party, Tracy is shocked when her mother, Carly, turns up and Tracy throws fizzy pop at her; Tracy later apologises to Carly and Carly tells Tracy about a potential job on a film and suggests they go to London. Carly is delighted when she lands a film job.

Elaine is furious that Tracy was allowed to go with Carly, that she did not interview Carly or that the time they will be back is unknown. Whilst in London, Carly and Tracy talk about their past and Tracy decides to forgive Carly before heading to a café, run by Carly's friend, Gloria, and Carly tells Tracy about the film. On their way back to The Dumping Ground, Carly leaves Tracy and upon her return, Tracy is questioned by Cam, Elaine and Shelley about her day with Carly and she tells the young people that she is going to live with Carly. Crash tells Cam about Carly planning to take Tracy and upon arriving to collect Tracy, Elaine questions Carly about where she is going with Tracy as it is procedure, angering Carly. As Carly leaves, she meets Cam and finds out about Cam's plans to foster Tracy and Tracy is devastated when Carly leaves without her and Tracy rows with Crash about his interferance.

The next morning, Tracy is discovered to be missing from The Dumping Ground and the young people agree to keep quiet about what they know and the police are called; Bouncer falls for the female police officer, Tina. When Tracy goes to see Gloria, Gloria tells Tracy that Carly has gone to Hopeston to work on the film. When the police suggest searching Tracy's room, Hayley handcuffs herself to Mark, the male police officer, whilst some of the others destroy things from Tracy's day in London. Tracy fare-dodges to get on a train to Hopeston and when Tracy contacts them on Justine's mobile, which she took, Tracy exeggerates to Crash, prompting him to join Tracy in Hopeston, and she stops and escapes the train, as well as releasing pigeons, when the conductor asks for tickets.

Later, Tracy calls Cam, who is devastated when Tracy tells Cam she wants to be with Carly all the time, so Cam spends the night at The Dumping Ground and Crash finds Tracy at the train station in Hopeston. The following day, Crash gives Tracy a necklace for her birthday and Justine finds out about the location of the film in Hopeston and Cam scares Justine, when she overhears and demands to know where Tracy is. Shelley, Duke, Jackie, the police and Bouncer follow Cam and Justine to Hopeston. Tracy and Crash sneak onto the film set and when Carly falls off a horse, Tracy confronts the crew about putting Carly in danger, but they reveal Carly is the stunt double and Carly tells her she may have a surprise for her later. Everyone arrives at the film set when filming has finished and are relieved to find out Tracy and Crash are at a nearby motel. Later, Tracy is picked up by a pink limousine and is amazed when the film set has been transformed for a birthday party; Tracy wrongly assumes Carly organised it as the surprise, but it was Cam. Cam agrees to take Tracy to see Carly and Tracy informs Carly it is her thirteenth birthday, which is forgotten by Carly, and she wants Carly's permission to be fostered by Cam. Back at her birthday party, Carly later arrives and Carly allows Cam to foster Tracy.

Mark and his wife, Helen, arrive at The Dumping Ground to see Hayley and invite her out with them.
