The Price COMPLETE mini-series
Geoffrey Carr (Barkworth), a major player in the emerging computer industry, is newly married to the impetuous Frances (Walter), a much younger woman with a wilful daughter from a previous marriage. He’ll go to any lengths to make her happy, and stretches his finances to buy a crumbling Georgian estate in County Wicklow where Frances spent part of her childhood. Aside from commitments on the new house, Geoffrey’s continuing control of the company depends on an uncertain research deal with a visiting Japanese consortium.
Frank Crossan (Derek Thompson) is an Irish Republican hitman on the run from British authorities in the North, and from his own commanders. Seeking refuge with old flame Kate (Aingeal Grehan), he hatches a plan to kidnap a wealthy Brit for a hefty ransom to fund a major arms deal.
The two worlds collide when Frances and daughter Clare are brutally snatched and removed to a bleak hideaway. Geoffrey’s immediate impulse is to cave in to the kidnappers demands but nothing is straightforward when a personal crisis plays out against the forces of political intrigue, high finance, and the full glare of the media.
