Having moved into their new home, young couple Gemma and Richard are perturbed by noises coming from next door and suspect child abuse by their reclusive neighbors after a little boy wanders into their house. When social services produce no evidence they start to make recordings of their own but Richard is alarmed that his partner is becoming obsessive, delivering a toy containing a mini-cam in the belief that the boy is being kept in a locked room. He reluctantly agrees to accompany her in investigating when the family is out but they are caught and taken to the police station - where they hope to find out if their concerns are justified.Written by

This is a must see. I've been binge watching Ben Channan productions at the moment after watching The Capture I'm sensing a theme: technology, and more specifically: cameras.
What this particular TV movie does so well is to keep you guessing from start to finish about who the nightmare neighbours really are.
It goes deeper with the invasion of privacy and the study of possible paranoia by never offering satisfaction to the protagonists(?) or the viewer.
I was impressed by how easily I was able to relate to all of the characters on multiple levels.
It's not often I watch something so tense that I can't stop thinking about even after the credits roll, but this review tells you I'm still thinking about this and I probably won't sleep tonight because of it.
