Filmfest 2019

German Age Rating

When his son is sexually harassed by a well-known movie producer, Manny accepts a considerable amount of hush money to prevent the incident from becoming public. On the one hand, this spares his family the tribulations of the media circus that would ensue; and on the other hand, he and his wife desperately need the money. It's a decision with far-reaching consequences that threaten to tear the family apart. This BBC series is intense, thrilling, and very topical. In cooperation with Seriencamp München.
