Leith. 1983. A sex worker has been brutally murdered… her killer never caught. The authority’s eyes have been opened.

They are out of touch and the ever-changing sex industry has become a public safety concern.

A new role is formed: Prostitute Liaison Officer. Alongside a representative from the Church of Scotland, their aim is to work hand in hand with the infamous Leith sex workers.

When worlds collide, can they work together for the greater good? Or is the gap between prostitute and police too wide to bridge? Inspired by true events.
