A prisoner consumed by guilt, an officer with an impossible choice.

Cracker’s Jimmy McGovern is the writer of a taut three-part prison drama starring Game of Thrones’ Sean Bean in a role that’s a complete opposite of his current turn as Snowpiercer’s gloating villain. He’s Mark Cobden, a gentle man whose face is grooved with sorrow and regret as he accepts his punishment of a four-year prison term for a drunk-driving death that derailed his life as a husband, father and teacher. Overwhelmed by a system that tests his resolve, he soon learns he’s going to have to stand up for himself or, as a fellow inmate warns him, “Your life won’t be worth living now.” The prison officer in charge of Mark’s well-being, Eric McNally (Stephen Graham), has his own problems—namely, an inmate who’s threatening to extort him because of inside knowledge of Eric’s son, who’s incarcerated at a different prison and could be in danger.
