WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

The quiet and rural town of Ipswich is rocked by the discovery of the bodies of five women in 2006, with the residents of the dodgy London Road in particular being affected when a local resident is charged and convicted of the murders. Now, the community must struggle with being at the epicentre of a tragedy, and how they must get back on good terms with the rest of society…
