Feeling compelled to go on a belated coming-of-age adventure, Kim sets out to find her dad’s killer and along the way ropes mismatched brothers Jay and Nicky into her scheme.

The six-part series series is written and created by Gaby Hull and was commissioned by Zai Bennett, Managing Director Content, Sky and Jon Mountague along with Josh Cole as the commissioning editor. The project is executive produced by Phil Temple, produced by Charlotte Surtees and Kudos and directed by Al Campbell.
