A Fascinating Story, Well Told
14 June 2010 | by (Nova Scotia, Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a contemporary four-part series, set mainly in Manchester. The father, Michael, is an ex-con who has been living a quiet life in Ireland. When his son (Sean) gets into some trouble in Manchester, Michael goes home to offer his support. There are many sub-plots in this story, some of them confusing. Don't watch this when you are weary! You might miss some really important detail. There are many twists and turns along the way, making you unsure about who the "bad guys" really are. The acting is superb. I was especially impressed with Reece Noi, the young actor who plays Sean. This is mainly a story about crime. However, the family aspects which are explored are also an important ingredient. I recommend this series highly.
