The film is a cinematic remake of the 2004 BBC television mini series Conviction, which Gallagher also wrote.[1]



Although they try to realise their job, Joe and Chrissie commit the ultimate crime, and the fear of being caught out by their police force colleague, Robert (Mark Strong), turns their lives into a downward spiral of guilt and paranoia.
