A bold and refreshing take on Charles Dickens's novel from acclaimed screenwriter Gwyneth Hughes. It is 1842 and local choirmaster John Jasper hides a dark secret that plagues his dreams. Jasper is obsessed with the beautiful Rosa, who is engaged to his beloved orphan nephew Edwin Drood. The arrival of Helena and Neville Landless marks a turning point in all of their lives. Smitten by Rosa and instantly disliking Edwin, the hot-tempered Neville struggles to hide his feelings. In a drug-fuelled moment, Jasper sees an opportunity to make his dreams reality.
