BAFTA-winner Jack Thorne (National Treasure) returns to Channel 4 with a powerful and compelling new 4-part serial drama. Kiri examines the abduction of a young black girl, named Kiri, who is soon-to-be-adopted by her white foster family, and the trail of lies, blame, guilt and notoriety that follows.
Unfortunately this highly anticipated co-production between Hulu and Channel 4 is initially a UK exclusive. Leaving many serious TV fans disappointed around the globe. Read below to find out how Liberty Shield unlocks Kiri and so much more content where you are.
At the heart of the drama lies Miriam, played by BAFTA and RTS award-winner Sarah Lancashire (Happy Valley, Last Tango in Halifax), an experienced, no-nonsense social worker who loves and believes in her job, but has a maverick and instinctive approach to protecting the children in her care. Miriam arranges for Kiri to have an unsupervised visit with her biological grandparents. But when Kiri disappears during the visit, the fingers of suspicion and blame from the police, the press, and even her colleagues, point firmly at Miriam. As the media spotlight around the story intensifies, Miriam, as well as both sets of families, are forced to ask the toughest questions, not just of themselves, but of each other.
Tobi (Lucian Msamati – Taboo, Luther), who is Kiri’s birth grandfather, finds both his race and dysfunctional relationship with his son, the prime suspect in Kiri’s disappearance, put under the microscope. Meanwhile Alice (Lia Williams – The Missing, The Crown), Kiri’s fiercely articulate white foster mother, watches as her family starts to crumble under the pressure of very public grief.
Miriam is a dedicated social worker who arranges for Kiri, a young black girl, to have an unsupervised visit with her birth grandfather, Tobi, and his second wife before her white foster family officially adopts her. However during the visit Kiri tragically goes missing and as the search for her intensifies Miriam is very publically blamed by the police, the press, and even her colleagues for putting the girl at risk.
Tobi searches for his son, Nate, the prime suspect in the case, and faces up to some uncomfortable truths about his relationship with him. The witch-hunt is intensifying around Miriam as she’s under pressure to admit she is to blame for what happened to Kiri, while Kiri’s foster family of Alice, Jim and Si also find themselves in the media spotlight.
Alice and Jim are shocked to hear from DI Mercer that the police case against Nate might not be straightforward after all and everything may not be as it seemed. A reeling Alice goes on the offensive, with Miriam in particular in the firing line. Meanwhile Tobi is furious with the police for the way they’ve treated his family, as DI Mercer has more bad news for him.
Si realises his relationship with Alice has deteriorated and is determined to find out why, while DI Mercer confronts Nate with new evidence about Kiri’s murder. As we work towards the truth about what happened to Kiri, Miriam realises she has to take responsibility for her actions, Alice’s devastation gets the better of her, and Tobi has a choice to make about his son Nate.
