A small boy was taken from his family. A marriage fell apart. A police officer lost hope. A father searches on... When five year-old Oliver goes missing while on holiday in France, it sets off a manhunt that will last for years and years to come. The Missing takes you inside the mind of a father, desperate to find his lost son. Told through a delicate and complex narrative that reflects the fractured and frantic battle for a lost child, a lost marriage and a lost life, The Missing is a chilling, resonant and heart-breaking drama of a life consumed by hope and the conviction of love, loss and truth. A poignant narrative puzzle with twists and turns at every stage, The Missing follows Tony, a man who will do whatever it takes to find his missing child. Tony's exhaustive search fractures his marriage to Emily and threatens to destroy his life. Julien, the French police detective who launched the initial search for the child, also cannot shake the small belief that he may still be alive. This gripping relationship thriller is told over two time frames, simultaneously, in two countries. Exploring the emotional cost of obsession, hope and finding when to let go, this thrilling drama shows the impact of a child's abduction.
