The Pact

When a young brewery boss is found dead, a chain of events is triggered that draws four of his employees; Anna (Laura Fraser; Breaking Bad), Nancy (Julie Hesmondhalgh; The A Word, Broadchurch), Louie (Eiry Thomas; Keeping Faith) and Cat (Heledd Gwynn; Ordinary Lies) – into a fragile pact of silence, bound by a secret that will change their lives forever.

Anna’s police officer husband Max (Jason Hughes; Three Girls) investigates Jack’s (Aneurin Bernard; Dunkirk) unexpected death alongside his fierce superior DS Holland (Rakie Ayola; Noughts + Crosses), unaware that his own wife and her best friends are at the heart of a conspiracy. While brewery worker Tish (Abbie Hern; The Twilight Zone) becomes increasingly suspicious of her co-workers, Jack’s estranged father Arwel (Eddie Marsan; Ray Donovan) struggles to conceal dark family secrets.
