When DI Rachita Ray (40s), a British Asian police woman new to homicide is assigned to investigate the suspected honour killing of a young Muslim man, she quickly realises the suspects can't be guilty.
The evidence against the two brothers from a British Hindu family is flimsy at best. Her attempts at conveying this to her superiors and her colleagues fall on deaf ears, hidden biases and a keenness to wrap the case up mean no one is listening to her. That is until her probing leads the team to a much more sinister crime.
In this four-part drama, DI Ray goes on a journey that sees her uncover a complex web of deceit within organised crime, whilst laying bare the wounds deep within herself that she's spent a lifetime ignoring. Wounds that are born from a desperate desire to 'fit in', despite not looking the part.
