Father Michael Kerrigan is a Catholic priest presiding over an urban parish in northern England. A central figure in his local community, he must be confidante, counsellor and confessor to members of a congregation who - like himself - are struggling to reconcile their beliefs with the challenges of daily life in contemporary Britain. Each story centres around an individual member of his community, highlighting themes such as social deprivation, mental health, homophobia, addiction and the fundamental flaws within today's institutions.

Growing up, Michael hadn't planned to enter the priesthood. His previous life experience shapes his modern, maverick attitude to the role, which frequently puts him at odds with the church establishment. With a chequered past and a complicated relationship with his family, he does his best to support his parishioners through their troubles.

But with dark secrets of his own, the very human Father Michael can't always fix what's broken in their lives.
