BRI­TISH Pro­fes­sor Jonah Mul­ray’s (John Simm, pic­tured) life is turned up­side down af­ter his wife, Me­gan, is killed in a car crash in Hong Kong. Al­though his wife lived and worked there for six months, Jonah’s fear of fly­ing has kept him in Lon­don. Now he must ven­ture across the world to iden­tify her body.

When Jonah ar­rives, he is im­me­di­ately over­whelmed by the neon-sat­u­rated hyper-modern is­land of Hong Kong, a place in con­stant mo­tion, and a world away from the halls of academia. It’s a city di­vided, with one foot still in its colo­nial past and an­other in its Chi­nese fu­ture.

Then Jonah dis­cov­ers that Me­gan led a se­cret life. It seems to de­stroy every­thing they built to­gether. With her death leav­ing so many unan­swered ques­tions, Jonah strug­gles to make sense of it.
