Geoffrey Carr (Peter Barkworth) is a wealthy, key player in Britain's emerging computer industry, and newly married to Frances (Harriet Walter), a much younger woman, with wilful daughter Clare (Susanna Reid) from a previous marriage.
He'll do anything to make them happy, including stretching his finances to buy a Georgian estate in County Wicklow, where Frances grew up.
Frank Crossan (Derek Thompson) is an Irish Republican hitman on the run from British authorities. Seeking refuge with old girlfriend Kate (Aingeal Grehan), he creates a plan to kidnap a wealthy Brit for a ransom to fund a major arms deal.
Their two worlds collide when Frances and Clare are brutally snatched away to a bleak hideaway and taken hostage.
Geoffrey initially wants to cave in to the kidnapper's demands “ but nothing is simple when a personal crisis plays out against the forces of political intrigue, high finance and with the eyes of the media on them.
