When Danny was a baby, his mum was killed in a car crash. Overwhelmed with grief, his dad Steve bought a house in the middle of nowhere and locked Danny in, telling him the world outside was full of monsters waiting to take him away. But when Danny turns eighteen his whole world explodes in an instant and he has to come to terms with a new world he never knew existed. And find the real monster – the one that killed his mum.

Not recommanded for children under 10.

Our take

This new series from the producers of The End Of The F***ing World and Misfits, tells the story of Danny living in two inner universes: his childhood world, frightening and closed, but also magical and comforting, and the real world, which he discovers with the eyes of a child just being born. Poetic, funny and tragic, this drama shows a lot of humanity and the wonderful know-how of British series.
