Inspired a by a true story, Torn is a dramatic tale of parental love, families ties and belonging. It begins when Sarah (Holly Aird) believes she has seen the daughter she lost on a beach 11 years ago – the daughter who had, it was always assumed, tragically drowned. What follows is a devastating tug of love, as the now teenage girl (Jo Woodcock) is torn between her beloved “mother” who abducted her (Nicola Walker) and her biological mother, Sarah, who is a now stranger to her.
Torn was RTS nominated for Best Drama Serial and entertained 6.5 million viewers.
