Based on the 2014 novel by Emma Healey, this one-off BBC drama is a mysterious exploration of an elderly lady's struggles with dementia. Delicate OAP Maud becomes convinced that something awful has happened to her friend Elizabeth, and sets out to uncover the reason behind Elizabeth's apparent disappearance.
But with dementia clawing at her remaining cognitive functions, Maud's ability to differentiate between the past and present begins to slip away as old, unwelcome skeletons emerge. The race is on to find her friend before she loses herself.
Andrea Gibb (Swallows and Amazons) has adapted the book, and Aisling Walsh (Maudie) directs.
