It’s 1963, and Alison Wilson (Ruth Wilson) returns home to husband Alexander (Iain Glen) - shortly before his sudden death.

Blinded by grief and focusing on comforting her two teenage sons (Gordon and Nigel, played by Calam Lynch and Otto Farrant), Alison is bewildered when a Gladys Wilson (Elizabeth Rider) arrives at the door, claiming to be Alec’s ‘real’ wife.

Alison sets out on a journey to discover who Alexander Wilson really was, dissecting their 1940s romance and her husband’s mysterious career in the secret service.
