Life has given Rochdale-born, twenty year-old Jamie Summers very few rewards for her unremarkable existance. She spends her days serving food to mostly unappreciative customers, making her sure her sixteen year-old sister, Laura, gets to school, and spends her nights keeping drunken, over-amorous males at bay, one of the chief requirements of being a barmaid. There are no parents to help her cope, they died in a car accident, and she feels as if she is carrying the whole world on her shoulders. One night, she is driving home to Rochdale from Manchester's city centre, when her car is involved in an accident. So serious are her injuries that the decision is taken to amputate her legs and her right arm, in order to save her life. Her right eye is so badly inflamed that the surgeon has it removed. Watching the operation is Professor Jill Wilkinson, a leading Government expert on cybernetic implant surgery. She is given the go-ahead to perform an operation that would make her into a kind of super woman, in spite of protests from one of the nurses on duty, Karen Faulkner. Unbeknownst to her, she gains two bionic legs, a bionic right arm and a bionic eye. On discovering what has happened, she evades the security staff employed to guard her and Jamie seeks refuge at Karen's flat. Eventually, after much soul-searching, she agrees to become the UK's prototype bionic woman, but on her terms, not theirs.
