Storyline

British social worker Miriam Grayson's busy caseload includes 9-year old Kiri Akindele, a black girl who is due to be adopted by a white couple, Alice and Jim Warner. With the Warners' permission, Miriam approves an unsupervised visit for Kiri with her grandfather Tobi and his second wife, Rochelle. When Kiri disappears, Miriam is questioned by DI Vanessa Mercer, who suggests Kiri was abducted by her estranged, violent father, Nathaniel. When Kiri is found murdered, the public blames Miriam, who is suspended from her job. Hounded by the press, Miriam hits the bottle. Written by don @ minifie-1
