BAFTA-winner Jack Thorne (National Treasure) returns to Channel 4 with a powerful and compelling new 4-part serial drama. Kiri examines the abduction of a young black girl, named Kiri, who is soon-to-be-adopted by her white foster family, and the trail of lies, blame, guilt and notoriety that follows.

Episode 1

Miriam is a dedicated social worker who arranges for Kiri, a young black girl, to have an unsupervised visit with her birth grandfather, Tobi, and his second wife before her white foster family officially adopts her. However during the visit Kiri tragically goes missing and as the search for her intensifies Miriam is very publicly blamed by the police, the press, and even her colleagues for putting the girl at risk.
