Co-created by Michael Sheen (Good Omens), James Graham (Sherwood) and Adam Curtis (HyperNormalisation), the drama follows the journey of one ordinary Welsh family – the Driscolls – dealing with authentic, impossible choices in a turbulent civil landscape.

When a chain of events sparks unrest across the nation, the family are forced to flee the country, leaving behind the lives they have built. Director of BBC Drama Lindsay Salt said the show is “both deeply grounded in its authenticity yet packed with imaginative spirit”.
