British actors Carey Mulligan, Billie Piper and Nicola Walker star in this politically-minded four-part thriller from British playwright David Hare. It has the sheen and settings of a glossy police procedural, but beneath the surface lurks something darker, deeper and more finely-attuned to the divides in Britain’s social fabric.





When a pizza delivery man is gunned down on the streets of Southeast London, Detective Inspector Kip Glaspie (Carey Mulligan) is tasked with solving the case, whereupon she stumbles upon a web of international people-smugglers, refugees, undercover MI5 agents and military operations.
