Storyline

The three part drama unfolds against the backdrop of the Iraq war and the world of the multi billion pound mobile phone industry, flashing back and forth to retrace events from three very different perspectives: the engineer, the soldier and the boss. Each episode features the same story told from a different viewpoint and only in the final scenes of the third episode is the connection between all three stories made for the first time.

tense drama that plays with your head
1 October 2007 | by (British Columbia) – See all my reviews

I can find no information about this series which I stumbled across last night on an obscure Canadian TV channel. This first episode of an unknown number is promoted as an examination of a conspiracy originating in Iraq. I am hooked. As a viewer, I was given small tidbits of detail, a series of shocking incidents, a glimpse into the life of a seemingly tragic yet ordinary family swept up in events over which they have no control...well, I'll come back for more. The cast are pretty much new to me though I do watch a fair amount of British television. They all perform well and the conspiracy, what ever it turns out to be, is tantalizingly unrevealed thus far.
