About

Father and Son

Father and Son is a twisting, heart-rending, star-studded tale of redemption. A compelling contemporary thriller loaded with high
calibre talent from the award-winning makers of Wallander and The Queen.

Michael O’Connor was a gangster. One of the toughest around. A legend, you might say. Now he’s served his time and put some miles between him and Manchester, trying to put it all behind him – make a fresh start in Ireland with his girlfriend and their soon-to-be-born child. Unfortunately, the life Michael
lived has left a terrible legacy.

Violence on the estates and gun crime are rife. Even the good kids are getting tangled up in it. Like Michael’s estranged 15-year-old son, Vincent. Caught up in the chaos of a murder on his own doorstep, Vincent suddenly finds himself in the firing line.

Michael returns to England to save Vincent but determined to avoid being pulled back into his old world. However, morals are a lot harder to stand by when your son’s life is at stake.

Starring: Ian Hart (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Enemy of the State) Dougray Scott (False Witness, Desperate Housewives), Stephen Rea (V for Vendetta, The Crying Game) and Sophie Okonedo (Doctor Who, Mrs Mandela)
