This original British drama is a powerful portrayal of a woman who realises her husband had been keeping a secret, upon his death she decides to uncover the truth

Mary Hussain (Joanna Scanlan), who converted to Islam when she married and is now in her early 60s, lives quietly with her husband Ahmed. Following his unexpected death, she suddenly finds herself a widow. A day after the burial, she discovers that Ahmed had a secret life just 21 miles away from their Dover home, across the Channel in Calais.

The shocking discovery compels her to go there to find out more and, as she grapples with her shattered sense of identity, her search for understanding has surprising consequences.
