Christopher Eccleston stars as Daniel Demoys, a disillusioned and corrupt council official with a drink problem. Daniel's relationship with his wife (Dervla Kirwan) is on the brink of collapse, but when he decides to run for mayor it looks like he could be turning over a new leaf. He quickly gains the public's support for his straight-talking and honest approach. But Daniel has a secret - and as his public profile rises, the truth threatens to reveal itself.
