Co-created by and starring Daisy Haggard, the first series of Back To Life follows Miri Matterson as she returned to her quiet seaside town after a lengthy spell in prison.

Having entered prison during her formative years as a young adult, the series comically traverses her naïve attempts to fit into the modern world that has changed significantly in the 18 years she has spent away from it.

Over the course of the six-part series, her community’s refusal to accept her catalyses the reveal of the truth behind her crime.
