Rose (Ann Skelly) is at university studying veterinary science. An only child, she has enjoyed a loving relationship with her adoptive parents. However, for as long as Rose can remember, she has wanted to know who her biological parents are and the facts of her true identity.

After years trying to trace her birth mother, Rose now has a name and a number. All she has to do is pick up the phone and call.

When she does, it quickly becomes clear that her birth mother, Ellen (Orla Brady), does not wish to have any contact. Rose is shattered, but a renewed and deepened sense of rejection compels her to keep going.

She travels from Dublin to London in an effort to confront her birth mother, but Rose’s very existence threatens the new life Ellen has painstakingly put together.

Rose is tenacious, though, and when Ellen is forced to reveal a secret she has kept hidden for over 20 years, she sets out to confront her biological father, Peter (Aidan Gillen).

What Rose cannot possibly foresee is that she is on a collision course that will prove both violent and unsettling – dark forces gather and threaten to destroy the fragile sense of her own identity.
