Kiri goes missing on an unsupervised visit to her birth family arranged by her social worker, Miriam (Happy Valley‘s Sarah Lancashire). Written by Jack Thorne, this four-part drama is the story of a young black girl in the process of being adopted by a middle class white family.
Featurette just released featuring interviews with writer Jack Thorne, executive producer George Ormond, director Euros Lyn, and cast members Sarah Lancashire, Lucian Msamati, and Paapa Essiedu.
We follow Miriam, as the fingers of suspicion and blame point at her and her judgement is questioned; Kiri’s birth family, as they find both their past failings and their present dysfunctional relationships put under the microscope; and Kiri’s adoptive family – particularly Alice, Kiri’s fiercely articulate white foster mother, as they are thrust into the national limelight. All of them are asking the same two questions: what happened to Kiri, and who is to blame?
