When teacher Peter Farquhar (Timothy Spall) meets magnetic student Ben Field (Éanna Hardwicke), one of the most staggering criminal cases in contemporary history unfurls. Suspicions around Field’s relationship with deeply religious Ann Moore-Martin (Anne Reid) also bring a new series of distressing disclosures to light.
