Drama Series set in London.  The tidy life of a troubled man, Jean, is turned upside down when his outlaw brother, Martin, crash lands into his world, and gets both of them fatally involved in organized crime.

Jean and Martin Roques fight to confront dark sins of the past and very real dangers in the present – so they can survive and be free to build a future.

The brothers are different – Jean is a conservative and successful French immigrant to London; Martin is a visceral and libidinous wanderer. In truth, they are two sides of the same coin, their lives marked forever by a violent killing in la Vendée almost 30 years ago.

Played out against a backdrop of Jean’s niche Crime Scene Cleaning business, with gangsters, corruption, drugs and death a constant hazard, Jean, Martin and their dysfunctional family struggle to gain control over life, business, and their shared destiny.
