John Thaw is Harry Jenkins in this brand new ITV film, a gruff, self-obsessed, estate agent, used to getting his own way. Until, that is, he returns from a game of golf to find the police on his doorstep with news of his estranged daughter's death, and discovers for the first time that he is the grandfather of a mixed-race little girl. Saffron, his spirited and strong-willed granddaughter proves to be quite a match for him, and a trip to London in search of her father forces Harry to face up to a few home truths. He realises that things need to change if he is to play a part in Saffron's life. Brilliantly acted, this powerful and moving drama evokes Harry's inner struggle for salvation.
