In a nutshell
What’s our responsibility to the future?
Chernobyl. Fukushima. Three Mile Island. Names
all loaded with dread to this day. But what if the
fallout from any one of those incidents had been
much, much worse?
Hazel and Robin are two retired nuclear scientists
living in a cottage on the English coast, still
haunted by a disaster at the power station
where they used to work, and still living in fear
of each click of the Geiger counter. Clutching at
normality, they farm, or do yoga, or do their best
to keep in touch with the world at large, which
has descended into chaos after the apocalypse
at the reactor.
When an old colleague turns up at their door, the
couple are forced to confront an uncomfortable
truth. The Children is a stunning, intense, slowburning
drama by one of the UK’s hottest young
