Plot Synopsis

In this eight-part drama series, US-born Max is at the heart of British politics and power, owner of a media empire that includes newspapers and television stations. His aristocratic ex-wife Kathryn has been frozen out of the family and spends her days working at a homeless shelter. Their son, Caden, is at the center of Max's operation, editing broadsheet newspaper The National Reporter -- but he's out of his depth and the strain is showing. When Caden suffers a catastrophic breakdown, the fragmented family is pulled back together. With their son fighting for his life in the hospital, the story of Max and Kathryn's relationship and their battles for control over the future of their son are revealed. Beneath the sheen of respectability there are terrible secrets waiting to be unleashed within Max's empire that could threaten its very existence. And when Caden wakes from his coma Kathryn discovers her son has changed, suffering serious brain trauma. The son is a baby again. What kind of man is he about to grow into?
