But when the release is botched and they strike again in Britain, the kidnapper, Willard's (Hannah) motives become far more sinister.

With trouble brewing at home with his wife Sophie (Little) and teenage daughter - and his team, boss Angela (Baxendale) and ambitious assistant Carrie (Karan) pushed to the limit, King must draw on all his reserves to bring the victims home alive.
