DAVID MURDOCH is a middle-aged prison officer; widowed, living alone, he has one grownup daughter, LUCY, who is pregnant. She is his world.
When JULES HOPE, an inmate at Ravenhill Prison, is taken ill, it’s MURDOCH who escorts her to hospital. But while JULES is waiting for treatment, MURDOCH gets a phone call with an ultimatum that turns his life upside down.
MURDOCH knows he has no choice but to comply. But when the plan goes awry he is forced to take matters into his own hands.
Pursued by DS SUSAN REINHARDT, MURDOCH finds himself in a race against time to evade the law and save his daughter’s life.
Airs Wednesday 9th December.
