Criminal Justice, Series 2 Episode 1 of 5

Duration: 1 hour

Thriller written by Peter Moffat.

Juliet Miller's life is turned upside down forever after an incident that leaves her family fighting for life, love and survival.

From the outside, Joe and Juliet Miller seem to have perfect lives: designer house, Joe's dazzling career as a top barrister, Juliet's enviable job as stay-at-home-mum to 13-year-old Ella - but all is not what it seems.

A flustered Juliet prepares for her husband's return from work. He arrives with flowers and greets wife and daughter, but both adults are jumpy and frenetic. We see unsettling clues as to what might be going on and wait anxiously for some kind of eruption. That night, a shocking incident occurs that will change each of their lives forever. Juliet is plunged into the criminal justice system and has to fight for her sanity and the survival of her family.
