“Superb… A taut psychological thriller that’s also a portrait of people falling apart.” - The Guardian
A young British woman stumbles through the streets of her German hometown and collapses. Her name is Alice Webster, and she has been missing for 11 years.
Alice’s return sends shockwaves through this small community. Where has she been? Who has been holding her? And who was she held with? A local German man is identified as the abductor, but he and his wife plead innocence. As Alice’s family is thrown back into turmoil that threatens to tear them apart, we begin to explore the murky morality and emotional complexity of what happens when the missing child you've been longing to return actually comes back.
Told through the same narrative structure of past and present that made series 1 of THE MISSING such compelling viewing, this gripping new case will take you on a journey of twists and turns in search for the truth about what happened to Alice.
