A primetime Liverpool-based drama series from Jimmy McGovern. Broken is described as a "state of the nation piece".It plots the perspective of a local catholic priest Father Michael Kerrigan and that of his congregation and their struggle with both Catholicism and contemporary Britain".
Father Michael reaches out to a troubled parishioner, a single mother-of-three, who is badly struggling for money after a series of unfortunate events - but she rejects his attempts to help. The woman's mother then dies suddenly. Father Michael has to cope with his own frail mother, living 60 miles away, and as he deals with the effects of his own harsh, working-class upbringing and reflects on the conflicts within society at large, he questions how much of an impact he can really have on the ever-evolving spiritual landscape of modern-day Britain.
Father Michael counsels a desperate gambler, and a devoted mother witnesses the fatal police shooting of her mentally ill son - a tragedy the priest thinks he could have prevented.
