US-born Max is at the heart of British politics and power, owner of a media empire that includes newspapers and television stations. His aristocratic ex-wife Kathryn has been frozen out of the family and spends her days working at a homeless shelter.
Their son, Caden, is at the heart of Max's operation, editing broadsheet newspaper The National Reporter - but he's out of his depth and the strain is showing.
When Caden suffers a catastrophic breakdown, the fragmented family is pulled back together.
With no prospect of returning to the role he'd spent his life being groomed for, Caden has nothing to live for. He spirals downwards until his equally unhinged companion Orla makes a potentially devastating suggestion.
Kathryn reconnects with the volatile Scott, with whom she'd established an intense connection at the homeless shelter. Max weighs the political candidates as the general election looms - but has his judgement been impaired by his son's illness?
When Kathryn learns some of Max's dark secrets, she too has a fateful decision to make.
Having chosen their sides, everyone digs themselves in for the impending war. Caden finds Orla to warn her that she may be caught in the crossfire - her secrets deployed as ammunition against Caden. Kathryn and Caden meet with journalists to get Caden's story on record - an expose of the practices at Max's newspapers. Max conducts a root-and-branch reform of his newspapers, but how will he deal with the threat posed by Kathryn and Caden?
