Amanda Redman stars in this six-part ITV drama series. According to Mack Carter (Danny Webb), whoever said crime doesn't pay was a moron. But when Mack is sent down for a four year stretch, his wife Lindsay (Redman) starts to think that maybe the moron had a point and it's time the Carter family gave up the family business of theft, fraud and the odd bit of forgery. This revelation comes as something of a shock to the Carter offspring who start to wonder if Mum has truly lost it, but eldest son, Taylor (Matthew McNulty), who has just graduated as a lawyer, proves to Lindsay exactly what can be achieved with a little honest hard work. However, siblings Vin (McNulty), Kacie (Laura Haddock) and Lianna (Eleanor Wyld) will not be best pleased when they find out what Lindsay's got lined up for them and exactly how hard this honest life is going to be.
