New drama from the makers of The End of the F***king World coming to Channel 4

Danny’s mum was killed in a car accident when he was just a baby.

In order to protect Danny from any more danger, his father Steve isolated them and locked Danny inside a new house in the middle of nowhere.

Danny grew up learning of the monsters waiting for him if he was to leave, and that they were the ones who took his mum.

For 18 years they stayed, avoiding the evil outside while listening to Benny Goodman records and watching old movies with only happy endings.
