Synopsis

Money cannot remove guilt. Money cannot erase memories. Money cannot change the past. Money cannot replace love

A struggling working-class father accepts a substantial pay-off from a renowned filmmaker to keep silent about the molestation of his youngest son. The father felt this would enable his family to heal and move on – he was so wrong.

Dark Money sees a guilt-ridden dad decide to accept ‘hush money’ rather than drag his family through publicity hell by pressing charges against a celebrity. The series is told from the point of view of the family. We follow their journey, from accepting the money and starting a new life – to the family splintering and the father seeking vengeance for his son.
