In the tradition of Stephen Poliakoff's other work, Callum encounters a number of other characters whose stories all intertwine. These characters include Victor (Highmore), Callum's younger brother, struggling to deal with psychological trauma caused by his experiences on the frontlines; Harold (Molina), a Foreign Office official who reveals some startling truths about the outbreak of the war; Rachel (Riley), an enchanting Anglophile American engaged to his best friend; Eva (Bassett), a confident American jazz singer who breathes life into the old hotel with her music; and Kathy (Fox), a tough, young woman working for the War Crimes Unit, fighting to bring war criminals who escaped prosecution to justice. All of these characters are trying to rebuild and move forward with their lives in the aftermath of a war that scarred them all so deeply.Starz acquired U.S. network pay TV and SVOD rights from all3media international who will distribute the series worldwide.
