This upcoming three-part drama is set in both 2008 and the present day and follows DC Maggie Brand who investigates the disappearance of a little boy named Callum Reid.

In the hours that follow Callum disappears and nothing is ever the same again.

Five years later, the body of Callum is found buried mere yards from his front door. Now a DCI, Brand leads the new investigation and will leave no stone unturned, and going as far as risking her own happy family life with husband Jeb (Jamie Sives) to find out what happened to Callum.
