Kiri - Scripted Format

60 min - 4 scripts available

When everyone's played a part, where do you lay the blame?

BAFTA award-winning writer Jack Thorne (National Treasure) is behind this powerful and compelling drama.
Kiri examines the abduction and death of a young black girl, named Kiri, who was about to be adopted by her white foster family, and the trail of lies, blame, guilt and notoriety that follows. At the heart of the drama lies Miriam, 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 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.
