If ancestry is a story then truth may be an unhappy ending…
When amateur genealogist Rob Banks travels to the remote town of Meredith in the north of England he hopes to research his mother’s father. His mum never knew her dad, yet she believes he was the local doctor – surely a well-respected man?

Seventy years earlier, Dr Robert Lachlan faces a dilemma of morals and medicine. No matter what course he chooses, he will hurt his loved ones and change his life.

This is a tale of two men in different times. A grandfather whose deeds still haunt his descendants; a grandson searching for his ancestor’s secrets.

Sometimes you have to see through history to discover who you are.
