EDIT
The Leaches' Story
AIRED:
Some men just disappear. They kiss their wives and children goodbye, saying they'll be home for tea and are never seen again. Stuart Leach is one such man. Thirteen months ago he set off from home to his job at Mackintosh Textiles and never returned. Until now... And now that he's back, he cannot remember where he has been. In fact, as far as Stuart is concerned it is as if the last year does not exist. He has lost his memory, or so he claims. His wife, Sue (Alison Swann), and brothers - Martin and Kev - want some answers. Although happy that he is alive, Martin is not exactly pleased to see his brother back. Perhaps time may have stood still for Stuart, but while he was away, Martin and Sue had to deal with his disappearance, became close started sleeping together. Suddenly all Martin's hopes for a relationship with Sue are threatened. Martin is desperate to find out exactly what did happen to Stuart in the last year. How did he come by the knife wound on his back? Who was he trying to telephone in the middle of the night? The search for answers takes the two brothers on a trek across the North of England. And when the past finally catches up with Stuart, it is far worse than anyone had imagined. The journey of discovery leads not to drugs, crime nor violence, but to a small suburban house in Sheffield, where the truth is finally uncovered. It is a truth that will send one of the brothers to prison and break both of their hearts.moreless
