Written by BAFTA-nominee Stephen Butchard (Five Daughters) and directed by BAFTA-winner Julian Farino (Marvellous), this single drama follows children’s author Stephen Lewis (Cumberbatch), as he struggles to find purpose in his life after his daughter goes missing.
Stephen’s wife Julie (Macdonald) has left him and his best friends Charles (Stephen Campbell Moore) and Thelma (Saskia Reeves) have retired to the countryside, battling demons of their own. With tenderness and insight, the film explores the dark territory of a marriage devastated, the loss of childhood, the fluidity of time, grief, hope and acceptance.
Produced by Pinewood Television and SunnyMarch TV for BBC One and co-produced by MASTERPIECE. Executive Producers are Helen Gregory for Pinewood Television, Benedict Cumberbatch, Adam Ackland and David Boulter for SunnyMarch TV, Lucy Richer for the BBC, Rebecca Eaton for MASTERPIECE and Stephen Butchard.
