Taken Down

In this Irish crime drama set in Dublin, Esme, a young Nigerian girl is found dead at a bus stop, opening an investigation into her death.

This leads Inspector Jen Rooney and her team of detectives to a nearby centre where asylum-seekers are housed and processed. The shaken residents there are reluctant to talk to anyone. Many are terrified of deportation; many are just frightened of the police

We follow the team of detectives as they discover the world where refugees exist, and we see the unfolding impact their investigation has on fragile lives.

Some of the refugees find themselves under suspicion in surprising ways. Others have traumas from their past unearthed by the police attention with tragic consequences. The interventions of the centre’s manager also become increasingly sinister.
