Brighton, 1950s. When Daisy got married, she knew nothing of a police wife's struggles - the way secrecy and violence seep into the home. But over the years she finds ways to exist. She builds a fierce bond with her daughter, Linda, and together they escape reality and enter the twilit fantasy of the movies whenever they can.

Brighton, 1998. Linda is lost and still reeling from the horror of her mother's death a decade before. While clearing out the family home, she finds three letters to Daisy, from a man she'd never once mentioned.

Meanwhile Lucas, her deaf teenage son, is obsessed with his support worker, and relearning the sign language he shared with his Nanna. As the language comes back, so do memories of his early childhood. Will his remembering what really happened ten years ago save his family . . . or destroy it?

A grandmother, a mother, a son, bound together by love, tragedy, and the one place they can escape to - The Electric.
