Stick with it - it's grim, but moving

Stick with this one - the opening episode is one of the grimmest things you'll see on TV but the four-hour drama is well worth your time. It's complex and ultimately deeply moving, following sensitive runaway David on a kind of modern oddyssey to find his father, who disappeared when he was a child. Heavy, thoughtful, but rewarding.
