When ex-soap star Daniel Maple finds himself down on his luck and out of work, a chance meeting in a nightclub with an attractive young man provides an introduction to a world of crime. It’s not long before Daniel finds himself having to deal with corpses, a murderous undertaker, and an unseen stalker hellbent on revenge. A whirlwind of exploding crematoriums, car chases, and dark childhood mistakes come together on the night of a live soft soap opera broadcast in front of the nation.
