Summary, etc.:
Murder and intrigue on Ireland's remote coast. When Garda Sergeant Jack Driscoll (Owen McDonnell) returns home to the windswept west coast of Ireland, his father-and predecessor at his new post-warns: "Out here, it's a team of one." As chief law-enforcement officer in this insular community, Jack soon learns the hard truth in those words. Small-town life presents challenges he never faced in Dublin--among them, winning the respect of the villagers and escaping the shadow of his father (Ian McElhinney, Little Dorrit), whose methods relied more on pragmatism than principle. In these three feature-length crime dramas, Jack investigates a beautiful immigrant's murder, a child's abduction, and a teenager's baffling drowning. Complex characters rife with moral ambiguity and internal conflict populate this gritty series set against a landscape of epic beauty and isolation.
