Synopsis

A beautiful young mother lives in a concrete tower block - and wistfully watches the convivial life of good looking Jasper Black who lives across the road in a 'Georgian gem'. When her husband Lenny and their four-year-old boy go to an Arsenal football match one afternoon, she picks Jasper up in a local pub and brings him back to her flat for sex. During their encounter the TV plays footage of the football match which is suddenly ripped apart by a massive explosion, killing her husband and son. In the aftermath, struggling to deal with her guilt and grief, the young mother finds herself becoming closer to Terrence, the police officer in charge of the investigation and close friend of her dead husband. Unable to accept what has happened, she steals CCTV footage from Terrence and watches her family over and over again in the moments before their death. Her intense grief is matched by Jasper’s obsession with finding out who the bombers were.
