Robin Griffin, a detective specializing in the investigation of disappearances, moves to New Zealand to track down the little girl and try to start a new life. However, there is people interested in not discovering the truthand the path he must follow will become more complicated as different discoveries about the whereabouts of the girl come to light.

Moss was a firm bet on Campion’s part, although at first he thought of rescuing the actress Anna Paquin who he helped to discover with his film The piano. However, the actress was also a risky bet, because Australian television was about to withdraw funding if a foreign protagonist was hired. The director stood her ground, and thanks to the BBC she was able to give this important role to one of the best actresses of recent years.
