The five part contemporary drama set one year in the future, by acclaimed screenwriter Peter Berry (Zen, Prime Suspect 6), follows a group of characters – including a mathematician, an aid worker and a desperate father – who are each trying to deal with crises in their own lives when they are unwittingly caught up in a global mystery.

Stephen Ezard returns to England to attend the funeral of his brother Michael, and finds a world that has changed subtly but significantly from the one he left behind several years earlier. National security is tighter, and biometric ID cards are compulsory. Passenger profiling at all major transport hubs is common practice, public spaces are monitored 24 hours a day by digital cameras and armed police patrol the streets.

Caught between the expanding powers of government intelligence, the politics of global security and the murky world of illegal refugees and the new underclass of ID castaways, Stephen is forced to challenge his own complacencies about this new society.
