Carey Mulligan stars in a gripping, high-octane thriller set in present day London, from pre-eminent playwright David Hare.

Also starring John Simm, Nicola Walker and Billie Piper, the four-part drama is set over the course of four days and explores the spiralling repercussions surrounding the fatal shooting of a pizza delivery man.

Refusing to accept this is a random act of senseless violence, tough and single-minded Detective Inspector Kip Glaspie (Mulligan) is determined to discover if there is a darker truth.
