Blending coming-of-age story and detective thriller, the four-part series opens as a fire tears through a holiday home in a scenic Lancashire lake town.

But as Ember gets close to the truth, it threatens to destroy her life – forcing her to re-evaluate everything she thought she knew about her past, present and the town she’s always called home.
