Whilst on holiday in France in 2006 the five year old son of Tony and Emily Hughes goes missing sparking a frantic manhunt that is still going on 8 years later. As his marriage and world crumbles around him Tony (who holds himself responsible for losing his boy) never gives up the search for his son. Meanwhile French policeman Julien has his own reasons for not giving up on the case. Journalist Malik Suri also stays on the case convinced that Tony has something to hide. Filmed in the UK, France and Belgium.

In 2014, a young British woman stumbles through the streets of her German hometown and collapses. Her name is Alice Webster, and she has been missing for 11 years. Alice’s return sends shockwaves through the small community. Told in dual timelines, flitting between 2014 and the present day, we follow Alice’s family as they are thrown back into a turmoil that threatens to tear them apart at the seams. When French missing persons detective Julien Baptiste, races across Europe to pursue a 12-year-old case that he never let die, we begin to explore the murky morality and emotional complexity of what happens when the missing child you’ve been longing to return actually comes back.
