Some scars never heal.
Hidden is the eight-part crime drama from the award-winning makers of Hinterland. DCI Cadi John stands overlooking her childhood home. This is a landscape she knows well. A world she never expected to return to.
Drawn back for personal reasons – the faltering health of her beloved father – Cadi finds herself policing the precinct and people of her youth. It is a job she enjoys. However, when the body of a local woman is found in a remote river, Cadi’s world - and the world of those around her – is changed forever.
A story of family and sisterhood; three sisters caring for their stricken father; three sisters negotiating their own disparate lives, and three sisters connected by birth, but driven apart by blood. When another local girl goes missing, what began with a murder investigation, quickly escalates into a race against time; a desperate search to save the life of a vulnerable young woman held against her will in a ramshackle compound in the mountains.
Hidden is a gripping serial made up of inter-weaving narratives, all of them linked by a single crime – the abduction and incarceration of three young women, held in captivity, high in the hills by a local man. For Cadi and her sisters, the investigation will pose difficult questions, testing their love for each other and forcing them to answer the ultimate question – what comes first, family or truth?

Deeply engrossing, compelling drama.
