A commuter train in the north of England is brought to a sudden halt when a young woman jumps from a bridge in an apparent suicide. At a local hospital, a new born baby is discovered abandoned in a toilet by an African cleaner.
Are these events connected in some way.
The train is carrying off-duty policewoman Laurie Franklin (Suranne Jones – Coronation Street) and her mother Jen (Anne Reid – Coronation Street), recently diagnosed with dementia, to hospital for a memory clinic.
Laurie teams up with train conductor Danny (Matthew McNulty – Misfits, Little Ashes) to help control the chaos and comfort train-driver Pat (Steve Evets – Looking for Eric). Still in shock, Pat reveals that the jumper was an Asian girl, dressed in a burka.
Danny wonders with his father-in-law, Ibra (Aaron Neil), who the victim may be. Danny and his wife, Nusrat (Shivani Ghai – Cleanskin, House of Saddam) have further worries though. After multiple miscarriages they have a crucial adoption interview tomorrow.
Laurie and Jen arrive at the hospital where Jen suffers a seizure. Laurie meets Nick (Derek Riddel – Ugly Betty, No Angels), the foster carer who will look after the abandoned baby. Laurie becomes convinced that the baby and the train victim are related.
DI Mal Craig (David Morrisey – The Walking Dead) takes over the investigation with surprising news for Laurie. The victim was not an Asian girl. The train hit a man. And did he jump, or was he pushed?
