David is a successful city trader in London who is relentlessly focused on work. Beneath the confident facade, he is trapped by memories of the past and hostile to anyone who dares to help. Flashbacks reveal a childhood in South Africa at the mercy of an inadequate bully of a father Donald and an ineffectual mother Joanne. The physical and sexual abuse he suffered threatens any chance of happiness he might have now.Written by

I must admit I found this quite dull. I also found most of the characters quite cardboard in nature. They look good on paper but come out stiff on screen. Tough dad suddenly goes to weak man to further the plot. Love interest not right for the cut and thrust of the stock market world. Relationship forced and fake, too many flashbacks across multiple timelines and just overall a slow plod. 5/10 for me.
