A dramatized recreation of the poisoning of a man and his daughter in Salisbury, England, in 2018. The event created world headlines because the attempt to assassinate the former Russian spy, Sergei Skripal, was carried out with a deadly nerve agent called Novichok. Skripal was targeted by the Kremlin who wanted him dead for his Russian abdication and then cooperation with British intelligence forces. The poisoning of Skripal's daughter, Yulia, was judged to be collateral damage by British authorities. Frightening details of Novichok's wider effects within the surrounding Salisbury community are revealed as police investigate the international crime scene.
