Set on an isolated farm in Shropshire in 1657. The story of Fanny Lye, (Maxine Peake) a woman who learns to transcend her oppressive marriage and discover a new world of possibility - albeit at great personal cost. Living a life of Puritan stricture with husband John (Charles Dance) and young son Arthur, Fanny Lye's world is shaken to its core by the unexpected arrival of two strangers in need, a young couple closely pursued by a ruthless sheriff and his deputy.
"While Maxine Peake shines in the lead role of a downtrodden woman finding her own voice, all aspects of Thomas Clay’s gritty, immersive historical drama blaze with visceral authenticity" - Empire
