Deeply in debt and struggling to pay his children's crippling school fees, Tony da Silva finds the offer to front an anonymously owned shell company simply too tempting to resist.

In the wake of the Paradise Papers scandal and Paul Manafort’s conviction, dirty money is currently a big issue. And the UK is earning a reputation as one of the money-laundering capitals of the world. Hugh Costello’s drama explores the world of illicit shell companies and criminal overseas investors, through the plight of an accountant who, at risk to his reputation and his liberty, succumbs to a temptation which he soon comes to regret.
