While Ian (John Simm) serves time, Karen (Shirley Henderson) must raise their four children herself. The episodic film is structured around a series of visits: first the family visiting Ian in prison and then, years later, his painfully brief visits home. As time passes, the film very realistically captures subtle changes, as the children (played by four real-life siblings) grow - and how the distance between them and Ian grows too.
