One night in 2019, politician Vivienne Rook (Emma Thompson) causes a scandal on live TV.

At the same time, the Lyons family is united, as Rosie (Ruth Madeley) gives birth to a son. Brothers Stephen (Rory Kinnear) and Daniel (Russell Tovey) gather at the bedside, with grandmother Muriel (Anne Reid), and they wonder what life will be like for little Lincoln…

Five years in the future, in the London of 2024, Stephen and Celeste (T’Nia Miller) worry about their daughter, Bethany (Lydia West), who declares herself as transhuman.

Back in Manchester, Daniel’s now married to Ralph (Dino Fetscher), but is falling for Ukrainian refugee Viktor Goraya (Maxim Baldry). When the Lyons gather for Muriel’s birthday they’re interrupted by a call from their missing sister, Edith (Jessica Hynes). But she brings extraordinary news, and life for the Lyons is about to change forever...
