Kevin Williams (Campbell Wallace) – the 15-year-old son of Anne (Maxine Peake) and Steve (Stephen Walters) – is killed during the famously police-mismanaged Hillsborough disaster. Following this untimely tragedy, Anne makes it her life’s mission to fight the dominant narrative of the event and uncover the truth about what really unfolded.
