Southcliffe tells the story of an ordinary English market town devastated by a spate of shootings which take place over a single day. It explores tragedy, grief, responsibility and redemption seen through the eyes of a journalist returning to the small town of his childhood, to cover the story of the tragedy, and those closest to the victims of the tragedy.
As dawn breaks in the sleepy market town of Southcliffe, the unmistakable sound of gunshots ring out. The residents of this tight-knit community wake to discover an inconceivable horror has devastated the town, and the lives of those left behind are changed forever.
Questions, guilt and ghosts from the past are unleashed as the residents of Southcliffe resilience is tested, both as individuals and as a community.
Reporter David Whitehead, a journalist who grew up in Southcliffe, finds himself back there looking for answers from the shattered community while trying to reconcile dark events from his own past.
In the second episode the deceits, longings and desires of the people of Southcliffe are revealed in the days leading up to the shooting.
Everyone is forced through their loss to come to terms with how easily they took their loved ones for granted. But the reality of grief has not yet fully descended on them.
Reporter David is haunted by childhood memories of his hometown and is reluctant to return to Southcliffe. His own experience growing up there gives him a version of events which is dangerously subjective.
It becomes clear he knew the killer, many years ago. Feelings of guilt and responsibility provoke a deep-rooted resentment in David towards the grieving community.
The families of the dead are each immersed in their own struggle to comprehend the fallout. For some of them, there will be no return as grief isolates them from themselves, their loved ones and the community.
Claire cannot accept her daughter's death - it is simply too hard to confront. Paul desperately tries to compensate for the bad husband and father that he has been. In his denial, he fulfills a promise to his wife - but too late.
David's secret about his childhood friendship with Morton is beginning to take control of him. His marriage is falling apart and his job is on the line as he becomes insistent on finding an answer to why this happened.
Conspiracy theories surrounding police cover-ups feed into David's personal paranoia, and in a bitter outburst in the local pub, David accuses the residents of Southcliffe of being complicit through their apathy...
One year on from the shootings, an anonymous letter sent to David reawakens the possibility that Morton is still alive and returning to Southcliffe.
Now living alone in a bedsit, David takes the letter as a sign that he needs to return to his hometown once more and confront his past.
