Father & Son

UKTV – Sundays from 16 September, 8.30pm

Father & Son is a twisting, heart-rending, star-studded tale of redemption. Michael O’Connor was a gangster. One of the toughest around. A legend, you might say. Now he’s served his time and put some miles between him and Manchester, trying to put it all behind him – make a fresh start in Ireland with his girlfriend and their soon-to-be-born child. Unfortunately, the life Michael lived has left a terrible legacy. Violence on the estates and gun crime are rife. When Michael’s estranged 15-year-old son, Sean becomes caught up in the chaos of a murder on his own doorstep and finds himself in the firing line. Michael returns to England to save Sean, determined to avoid being pulled back into his old world. However, morals are a lot harder to stand by when your son’s life is at stake.
