Storyline

Based on real events, this powerful story of friendship, trust and forgiveness takes us to the heart of a community rocked by a child's disappearance. In 2008, nine-year-old Shannon Matthews is reported missing. A frantic search follows, quickly becoming a murder inquiry. Led by Julie, the community rallies behind Shannon's grief stricken mother Karen, determined to find her daughter and show that, although from a poor background, Shannon's life is as important as any other. With hope fading and doubts about Karen beginning to grow, Shannon is found - with a man her mother knows. As suspicions deepen, Karen's friends set about discovering the truth.

Compelling production and direction, fantastic acting
27 January 2019 | by yerwan1See all my reviews

The true story behind this two-part drama is not really known in the U.S. so the reviews from the U.K. with spoilers or references to the real story won't mean much to those of us from elsewhere. I found it a very interesting story about rough living and choices for those in difficult situations with seeminly limited options. The directing, editing, and score bring to life a neighborhood and neighbors in the best and worst of circumstances, and the acting by all the female leads is absolutely tremendous.
