For Her Sins | Preview (Channel 5)
Jo Joyner and Rachel Shenton lead the cast in this four-part psychological thriller about a woman who, on the surface, has it all. But with the pressures of modern life and a new friend secretly determined to create chaos, her world is set spiralling.
Laura Conroy is a woman who has it all – a loving husband, two beautiful children and a successful career as a lawyer. But like most people, there are cracks in her perfect veneer. Cracks that Emily Furness, a charismatic stranger, is hell bent on exploiting.
When Laura meets charming newcomer Emily in the school playground, they become fast friends. Laura’s husband Rob often works abroad, leaving a stressed Laura to deal with the children alone while juggling returning to work after the birth of their son. The beguiling, ever-helpful Emily is a real saviour in Laura’s eyes. However, all is not what it seems…
Laura is unwittingly led down an increasingly dangerous path as Emily sets about infiltrating her life and poisoning it from the inside. And she’s persuaded a journalist to help her take Laura down too. But why?
Unknown to Laura, these two women are bound by a shared secret; one Laura has tried to keep buried. But nothing stays a secret forever and Emily is here to make sure this one is exposed, no matter the price.
For Her Sins airs from Monday 05th June on Channel 5.
