It seems like a godsend—but the syndicate soon learns that good fortune can come at a high price. </p> <p>As the unlikely millionaires walk the tightrope between ruin and reward, the narrative follows each character in turn. Brothers Stuart (Matthew McNulty, Single-Handed) and Jamie (Matthew Lewis, Harry Potter films) are haunted by a crime of desperation, while store manager Bob (Timothy Spall, The King’s Speech) faces a daunting health crisis. Reserved Leanne (Joanna Page, Love Actually) finds her past catching up with her, and kindhearted Denise (Lorraine Bruce, Eden Lake) endures a troubled marriage. </p> <p>Compelling performances complement a sharp script from BAFTA-winning writer Kay Mellor (Band of Gold) in this taut and addictive British drama.</p> </div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-tagline field-type-text
