Laura is a smart and dedicated teacher, not long out of a relationship and unsure about getting back on the dating scene. Andrew is a renowned surgeon whose son is a pupil at Laura's school. An initial attraction leads to a date, but neither fully realizes the far-reaching consequences that their meeting will have on each other or their families. Truth and consequences go hand in hand in the tense and gripping thriller that examines both sides of a relationship and both sides of the truth. Are there really two sides to every story?

You can see where this is going
12 September 2017 | by dean-556See all my reviews

One episode and you'll know exactly where this ode to feminist theology is going. She'll act in such a way that no one would ever believe her account over his. Seasoned veterans of the police force will fail to ask the questions or pursue the lines of inquiry that would be obvious to any fresh grad from the academy. He will be totally believable and no one will support her, causing heart wrenching trauma as she takes more and more desperate measures to gain justice. Then, when all seems lost either 1) some fluke will uncover paradigm shifting evidence or 2) Mr. ALL Smooth and Innocent will, thinking he's alone,confess showing his totally evil character. But alas someone, somehow will have witness him and - Justice!! It will be so brilliantly and sympathetically acted by, Joanne Froggatt, that you will be helpless but to come to the conclusion that you should have just done the right thing and, "Listen and Believe" because, well you know - she is a she. You'll also believe this happens all the time and that false accusations never do. There you go. You got those 6 hours back. Your welcome.
