Alexa is a young police community support officer whose world feels unstable. Her father is estranged and her girlfriend increasingly distant. Their polyamorous relationship - which for years felt so natural - is starting to seem strained. As she patrols Sheffield, she senses the tensions in its disparate communities and doubts her ability to keep the peace, to help, to change anything. Caron is pushing Alexa away and pushing herself harder. A climber, she fixates on a brutal route known as Black Car Burning and throws herself into a cycle of repetition and risk. Leigh, who works at a gear shop, watches Caron climb and feels complicit. Meanwhile, an ex-police officer compulsively revisits the April day in 1989 that changed his life. Trapped in his memories of the disaster, he tracks the Hillsborough inquests, questioning everything.
