About the show

How far would you go to save your son?

Michael O'Connor was a gangster. One of the toughest around. A legend, you might say. Now he's served his time and put some miles between him and his home city Manchester, maybe he can put it all behind him make a fresh start with his girlfriend and their unborn child in Dublin.

Unforunately, the life Michael lived has left a terrible legacy. Violence on the estates has turned to outright warfare. Gun crime and tit-for-tat killings are rife. Even the good kids are getting tangled up in it. Like Michael's estranged 15-year-old son, Sean.

Caught up in the chaos of his best friends' murder, Sean suddenly finds himself in the firing line. Michael races back to England to sort out Sean's troubles, determined to avoid being drawn back into his old habits.

But morals are a lot harder to stand by when your son's life is at stake.

Will Michael be able to find a way through the drug and death fuelled insanity of the place he once called home; and can his son ever forgive him for the hurt and devastation he caused?

Inspired by true events, Father and Son is at once a twisting, heart-rending tale of redemption and a shocking portrait of a world that, for many, is becoming all too familiar.
