The real time drama takes place on the Heart of Britain service, a train running from Glasgow to London. A government agency closely monitors and desperately attempts to intervene on the sleeper train’s rapidly accelerating events. Two strangers (Roach and Cole), one on the train and one not, are forced to work together to ensure the diverse group of passengers aren’t journeying towards their final ever destination.
